Coming up on the Chalice of Salvation...

Rev. Timothy Keating, C.Ss.R, Presider/Homilist
St. Clement Parish, Saratoga, New York

As we begin this most holy of weeks, we are reminded of Jesus' triumphant entrance into Jerusalem. This wonderful, "Hosanna" filled day is the starting point for the central story of all the Gospels, Jesus' Passion, Death and Resurrection. Today, we reconnect ourselves to all those first gatherings of the Church as we listen to Matthew's accounts of Palm Sunday and the Passion of the Lord. We once again tell the story of triumphant, glory, hosanna, struggle, pain, sorrow, blessings, truth, giftedness, prayer and most importantly love. "May the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ Truly Be Always in Our Hearts!"

Scripture reference for this Sunday:
Isaiah 50: 4-7
Psalm 22 "My God, my God, why have you abandoned me."
Philippians 2: 6-11
Matthew 26: 14-27:66

Bishop Timothy A. McDonnell, Presiding
Msgr. Christopher D. Connelly, VG
Rector, of St. Michael's Cathedral

Today we rejoice that the tomb has no power over our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. But this is not the end; it is only the beginning. As we hear God's word today, and renew our baptismal promises, and pray the Eucharistic Prayer, and receive Communion, we must begin to figure out what it means for each one of us that Jesus Christ is risen in our own lives. Let us pray for the grace to begin.

Scripture reference for this Sunday:
Acts 10:34a, 37-43
Psalm 118 "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad.:
Colossians 3: 1-4
John 20: 1-9 or Matthew 28: 1-10
