Great and Holy Week begins on Sunday with the great cries of hosanna sung as the Lord enters his passion.

Jesus had just raised Lazarus from the dead, and now it was time for Jesus to go into Jerusalem. As He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, people hailed Him saying, “Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” They waved palm branches to give Him glory.

This week the Scripture reflection is offered by Melkite Father Francois Beyrouti, pastor of Holy Cross Melkite Church, Placentia, CA.
