Palm Sunday March 28, 2021

The letter to the Philippians, which may have been a Christian song before Paul used it here, speaks of Christ emptying himself out. And we see to what extent that emptying out went in Mark’s account of the Passion. I’m wondering if I have anything in life for which I would give my all. Just the fact that I have to wonder is maybe not a good thing. Something should have jumped into my mind right away. For what would I fight to my death? For what or whom would I be willing to die? Today, as I hear the account of Jesus’ death, I need to ponder if I am only blithely going through the motions of living, or if I am truly committed to my Christianity, my faith, my country, my family. It is not enough to exist, I must live! I must empty myself.  Image from
