    Sermon 481 : Which King? Whose Kingdom? : Palm Sunday

    Please click the play button above to listen now.
    Today the Church proclaims the Passion of Christ. The story of the Lord's suffering and death haunted the minds of the first Christians. All the Gospels center around it and find their fulfillment in it. The special emphasis in this years account, taken from the Gospel of Luke, is Christ's struggle with the false kingdoms of the world.

Father, I wonder if you would comment on Jesus' remarks about how if this is what they do when the wood is green, what will they do when it is dry. I have been puzzled by that remark, and would much appreciate knowing your reading of it.

We can never meditate too long on the topic of servanthood. All those who want to lead with any kind of success (love relationships, bringing the family together, success in ministry, etc) need to put the needs, goals and success of the other as a first priority. Only with this agenda will love bloom, the family bond grow, ministry bring blessing to the life of the other.

The reference is made in light of how Christ was treated in terms of the historical event of the Incarnation. If throughout his life, Christ suffered so much opposition, what will be the kind of opposition that he will face at the end? The cross displays the answer.

To paraphrase: ‘That is so characteristic of Jesus' approach. Most of our societies are predicated upon division, separation, who’s in who’s out. Jesus is characterized by this inclusive open relationship....Inclusive love. The disciples miss the point. Who is the greatest? Open table relationship.’

It is rather amazing that the Church is able to talk freely of The Christ being inclusive of sinners and yet feel so confident in the choice to exclude non-Catholics from Christ by denying them the Eucharist.

I realize the Church feels fully "justified" in this position. That is part of what makes it so amazing and a little unnerving to realize the nature of humanness.
