A reflection on the Gospel for Palm Sunday

Sometimes we see a person and we form an opinion about him or her on first sight. We also speak about love at first sight; a person sees another and knows he or she will be the sight; a person sees another and knows he or she will be the love of his or her life. Sometimes, however, our opinion changes very fast when we get closer to the person and get to know him or her better. Frequently, either the first impression or the later judgment is wrong. Something similar happens during the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. The first impression might be that of the entrance of a king, of someone important. People acclaim him as coming in the name of the Lord. But if we looked a little deeper, we would wonder what kind of king would enter a city riding a donkey. None who would really want to show his power and strength. Kings and emperors usually entered with a great entourage and were followed by their war trophies, prisoners, and slaves. Jesus has not been in a war nor does he have any prisoners. He has no entourage but his fisher friends. And he does not come in to claim his power but, as he knows will happen, to die. And yet, he is the truth.


Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Domingo de Ramos

A veces vemos a una persona y nos formamos una opinión a primera vista. También se habla del flechazo: se ve a una persona y ya se sabe que va a ser el amor de toda la vida. Pero a veces esa opinión cambia rapidamente en cuanto uno se acerca más a al persona o la conoce mejor. Con frecuencia están equivocados o la primera impresión, o el juicio posterior. En el caso de la entrada de Jesús en Jerusalén pasa algo parecido. Es verdad que la primera impresión es de la entrada de un rey, de alguien muy importante. La gente lo aclama como el que viene en nombre de Dios. Pero, bien mirado, ¿qué rey entraría en la cuidad montado en un burro? Ninguno que verdaderamente quisiera mostrar su poderío y su fuerza. Los reyes, los emperadores, entraban normalmente con un gran cortejo y seguidos de sus trofeos de Guerra y sus prisioneros. Jesús no ha tenido guerras ni prisioneros. No tiene más cortejo que el de sus amigos pescadores. Y no entra para proclamar poder sino, como él sabe que va a ocurrir, para morir. Y sin embargo, es la Verdad.

Fr. René Gómez
