Fidelity to the Word
Our Lord and His Holy Apostles at the Last Supper

A blog dedicated to Christ Jesus our Lord and His True Presence in the Holy Mystery of the Eucharist

Now therefore saith the Lord: Be converted to me with all your heart, in fasting, and in weeping, and in mourning. And rend your hearts, and not your garments, and turn to the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful

Joel 2:12-13

Crowned with Praise

On Thy way to die, they crowned Thee with praise.
      We raise our song to Thee, now King on high.


And on the next day, a great multitude that was to come to the festival day, when they had heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried: Hosanna, blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord, the king of Israel. And Jesus found a young ass, and sat upon it, as it is written:
Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy king cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.
John 12:12-15

The multitude praises our Lord today, but will soon turn the praises to curses.

Mercifully forgive them, O Lord who this day at least speak the truth, even if it is without understanding: that Thou art the true King of Israel, the true Son of God, forever blessed. Forgive us, O Lord, make us constant in devotion, and merciful in imitation of Thy utterly pure and holy mercy.


Glory, praise and honor to Thee, O King Christ, the Redeemer: to whom children poured their glad and sweet hosanna's song.
