Reflection for Palm Sunday

Click here to read M. Shawn Copeland's reflection for Palm Sunday on the Pax Christi USA website.  Here's an excerpt: 

Holy Week teaches that while nothing is impossible with God, we must wait for the realization of that possibility. This is difficult in an age that so values activity over waiting. We moderns are happiest when we have something to do. We plan and plot, work and produce. Through technological sophistication, we contrive to control the uncontrollable–future and destiny, success and defeat, history and mystery....Passion Sunday counters this; it slows us down.
