On Palm Sunday Jesus’ march said “We will stand where Jesus stands, with the outsiders, with the outcasts, with the victims, with the immigrants, the LGBTQ+, the women, the children, the people of color. We will make a spectacle!"
The way of Jesus is not a way that requires grasping. Following the Christ means making a spectacle of yourself, being humble. Even knowing what is ahead we shout “Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!”
