Fr. Joel’s Homily for April 5 (Palm Sunday 2009)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Lent6 – Steadfast Love
Lent, Palm (Passion) Sunday. Human love is often fickle and spineless. One Sunday the crowd acclaims Jesus, next Friday it condemns him. Peter and Judas do the same. In contrast Jesus shows steadfast love even if the face of suffering. Like the woman with the alabaster jar of oil, Jesus breaks the jar of his body and pours over our heads his priceless, perfumed, steadfast love. (5 Apr. 2009)
