Passion Sunday Year A
Today we will see quite a change in the Liturgy and we will see a similar change with the next few Liturgies that we will experience. You will be in processions. You will see readings read out in three parts. You will see or participate in feet washing. The Cross will be revealed to you. At the Vigil, a glimpse of salvation history will be revealed where we go back in time to look at the promises and revelation that God has given to His people and witness how they were all fulfilled. Why such a change? Because these Liturgies are meant to help us encounter Jesus, to experience the Passion, to pray like Jesus did for all those who need redemption. Yes, Holy Mother Church is inviting you into the greatest story ever told. It is greater than all the fairy tales, the wildest movies because none of them ever had such great and sacrificing love for their beloved. No one has ever suffered so much and with so much love and in no story has a god ever offered himself for ungrateful people and none of them brought themselves from the dead. This is the most amazing event in history and it is brought to us now in the flesh, to be experienced this Holy Week. Yes, my brothers and sisters, this is made to be a life changing experience and encounter with God like never experienced before.
