On Palm Sunday we hear the the reading of Jesus’ crucifixion and death.  As surely as nails pierced Jesus hands and feet it should pierce our hearts and minds as we reflect on our failure to be disciples of this Jesus and to make disciples of Jesus.
The way of the cross may seem foolish, but it foolish for us to depart from it.
