Weekend Readings and Themes

April 5
Sunday of the Passion / Palm Sunday

At the beginning of Holy Week we go from the exuberant crowds hailing Jesus as King to his arrest, trial and crucifixion. The Philippians passage describes this as his emptying himself of his glory and power to become one of us and give his life for our sake.

Matthew 21:1-11

Isaiah 50:4-9a

Psalm 31:9-16

Philippians 2:5-11

Matthew 26:14-27:66

Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, a sign that death no longer rules over us. As God gave new life to the dry bones of Ezekiel, so he gives life in the Spirit to us now and in the world to come.

Ezekiel 37:1-14

Psalm 130

Romans 8:6-11

John 11:1-45
