Weekly Message

 Enter Triumphant...End Triumphant

 Dear brothers and sisters,

You heard the tale of the baby donkey that Jesus used, he had the most exciting day of his life; felt such a pleasure and pride. Next day, he wanted to show himself to the people; he walked into town and found a group of people by the well. But they didn’t notice him; payed no attention to him. He told them, “Throw your garments down; don’t you know who I am; the palm branches, singing Hosanna, etc.?” They chased him out. “Miserable heathens!” he muttered to himself. Hurt and confused, the donkey returned home to his mother and narrated everything. “Foolish child,” she said gently. “Don’t you realize that without Jesus, you are just an ordinary donkey?”

We do not follow Christ in order to be happy, successful and popular. But we follow Christ down that road – entering life triumphantly, carrying our own crosses, to be triumphant at the end of our lives. Just like the donkey, we are most fulfilled when we are at His service. Without him, all our best efforts are like “rubbish” (Isaiah 64:6; Jn. 15: Phil. 3:8) and amount to nothing. Our significance and worth comes from the fact that we know Christ – that we carry Him around triumphantly.

You may ask, why me then?  “Because you were   chosen little one.”  The colt, having never been ridden before, and being typically stubborn – meekly carries Christ to die. If God can use a little donkey in the triumphant accomplishment of his plan, in the fulfilment of ancient prophecy, then just maybe he has a plan for me and you too. With no excuses, He wants us to enter in life, at His service triumphantly; and end our life triumphantly, like Him. 

Blessings of the Holy Week!                  

Msgr. Xavier
