First Reading (Isaiah 50: 4–7)
The Lord GOD has given me a well-trained tongue, that I might know how to
speak to the weary a word that will rouse them. Morning after morning he opens
my ear that I may hear; and I have not rebelled, have not turned back. I gave my
back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who plucked my beard; my face I
did not shield from buffets and spitting.
The Lord GOD is my help; therefore I am not disgraced; I have set my face like
flint, knowing that I shall not be put to shame. The Word of the Lord
Second Reading (Philippians 2:6-11)
Christ Jesus, though he was in the form of God,
did not regard equality with God
something to be grasped.
Rather, he emptied himself,
taking the form of a slave,
coming in human likeness;
and found human in appearance,
he humbled himself,
becoming obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross.
Because of this, God greatly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name
which is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bend,
of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father. The Word of the Lord

Jesus enters Jerusalem in order to die on the Cross. And it is here that his
kingship shines forth in godly fashion: his royal throne is the wood of the Cross!
Jesus says: “I am a King”; but his power is God’s power which confronts the
world’s evil and the sin that disfigures man’s face. Jesus takes upon himself the
evil, the filth, the sin of the world, including our own sin, and he cleanses it, he
cleanses it with his blood, with the mercy and the love of God.(Pope Francis’
Palm Sunday meditation )
