Ez 37:21-28; Jer 31; Jn 11:45-56

You know nothing, nor do you consider that it is better for you that one man should die instead of the people.
It happened once and for all, including Caiaphas’ accidental prophecy, never to be repeated. And yet we cannot deny our memory. “Now the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went up from the country to Jerusalem.” That’s what starts tomorrow, Palm Sunday, Holy Week, the Triduum, the paschal mystery, all of it. We will replay every detail, and more than once. One last glimpse of Jesus, before he takes the stage, is heartbreaking: “What do you think? That he will not come to the feast?” So, Jesus waits.
You will turn our mourning into joy, O God, and you will console and gladden us after our sorrow!
