This Palm Sunday of the Lord's passion invites us to "participate". Throughout this Lenten season I have been reminding us of the call to "go to God together" which is challenging the religious attitude of many Catholics. Too many of us have a private spiritual well-being plan as our religious life. We are called like the crowds in the company of Jesus to go to God together, to come out of the tomb of our private spiritual well-being program (that we call our religious life) and to take a chance on a communal journey to the heart of God which we call communion.
Get into the ring! How this works...
This is easy! Each week on Thursday I post my homily idea...my main focus for preaching this coming Sunday. What I am hoping for is a reaction from people in the pews. Does my "focus" connect with your daily life, faith, and experience? Or not? Either affirm the direction I am going in (by giving me an example from your life) or challenge me, ask for clarification! Questions are the best! Reaction rather than reflection is what I'm looking for here. Don't be afraid, get in the ring. Ole!
