Pope Francis celebrated the Holy Mass of Palm Sunday today at St. Peter’s in Rome. Here is a link to his homily which I find so inspiring. “Do not be men and women of sadness,” the Pope said. “A Christian can never be sad! Never give way to discouragement! Ours is not a joy that comes from having many possessions, but from having encountered a Person: Jesus Christ!” http://www.ncregister.com/blog/edward-pentin/pope-francis-never-give-way-to-discouragement Perhaps you can print out this homily and read it throughout the week.
I pray that if you are not already planning to do so, you will make a way to take part in the Holy Week liturgies. Go and be prepared to encounter a Person – Jesus – who went through this week because of Love, love for His Father, and love for you and me.
