“Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord” (John 12: 13)
The Saturday of Lazarus and Palm Sunday are a sort of bridge between Great Lent and Holy Week.
These days also live in the tension between joy and betrayal. People are welcoming Jesus as the Messiah while others are preparing to put Him to death.
So who actually welcomed Jesus when He entered Jerusalem?
It was those who were joyous and gentle: whose hearts were ready to be filled with the Holy Spirit so they could welcome the true Messiah.
It was the children.
