Betrayal, lies and grace

The Palm Sunday liturgy crams an amazing array of emotions into an hour – from the jubilation of the triumphant entry into Jerusalem to the heartbreak and desolation of betrayal, sleep, violence, cowardice, lies, false witness, racial abuse, denial, pride, anger – the reality of so much human sin on display. It is precisely into all of this sin that the person of Jesus enters and journeys – until he can take it all on board in the violence of the cross and allow love to win the final victory.
