Society of the Sacred Heart, US Province
It's Palm Sunday - a very unexpectedly different one. For the first time, we cannot, any of us, gather in a crowd to welcome Jesus and sing Hosannah - except virtually. We cannot wave palms, unless we've kept them from previous years - or improvise, noting that scripture refers to branches or greenery. We begin Holy Week in our homes, and, God willing, we will still be there for Easter - not in our churches, or with friends, or away on holiday or retreat, but at home, currently our only or main place for encountering God and living our call to love.
