Today’s readings are among the longest and most rich that we experience at a Sunday Mass. It is sad that we can’t all experience Mass in a normal way during this Palm Sunday, but we can still dive into the living word.

Instead of writing a novel to start to unpack the rich teachings in the readings, I wanted to include a video reflection that I was asked to record for the Diocese of Kalamazoo on today’s readings. I hope this is a blessing to you as we enter Holy Week. Know of my prayers for you and for health. God Bless!
