Palm Sunday

The Pope's homily on Palm Sunday was posted early this morning. He speaks of the humility of Jesus and the humiliations he suffered and our need to make this week a Holy Week by following Jesus. Humility leads to service and is the opposite of worldliness.

The Pope said: "Following this path to the full, the Son of God took on the “form of a slave” (cf. Phil 2:7). In the end, humility means service. It means making room for God by stripping oneself, “emptying oneself”, as Scripture says (v. 7). This is the greatest humiliation of all.
