The Jesus Prayer (#650, 30th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

FrBenjamin – Jesus is a humble king (Palm Sunday)

Benjamin Homilies

Jesus comes into the city of Jerusalem on a donkey. He does not come in power to conquer the city, but He comes in humility and allows the people the freedom to choose whether they will accept Him or not. We need to walk with Jesus, not only when He is being praised by the crowd, but also when He is being hated and rejected. True friends are with one another in bad times as well as in good times, and we need to be true friends of Jesus. Jesus is a true friend of us; He is not only with us in the good times but He is especially close to us in our sufferings.
