Thought for the Day..

Palm Sunday is fast approaching, when our Lord makes his entry into Jerusalem and people grab branches from the palm trees and cast them before his feet. For two thousand years the church has re-enacted this event with processions, often including a donkey, and special prayers.

A lot of noise and a lot of confusion, even in the best ordered church services. This year there will be no noise, the streets will be quiet and the churches will be silent, and yet the example of our Lord's commitment to humanity, his faith in God and his determination to fulfill his destiny remain an inspiration to us all.

No-one knows where our journey in life will take us but the example of our Lord entering Jerusalem reminds us that wherever we go our Lord God accompanies us, now and always.
