Palm/Passion Sunday Year A.
FIRST READING: Is 50:4-7 SECOND READING: Phil 2:6-11 GOSPEL: Mt 26:14-27 or Mt 27: 11-54
Jesus the Eternal Son of God resurrects, breaks the iron gate of death and lights up the world. As Word Almighty He knew creates us. Baptism and Confirmation draw us into His Risen Body which now feeds and ever unites us to Him. This night we renew our pass over with Christ to New Life. We wake to Peter and Mary Magdalene urging us to proclaim that Christ is risen ever fixing our gaze on heaven with converted Paul. Happy Easter! Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna
