I always think of this as ‘fickle’ Sunday. It is the only Sunday in which we hear two Gospels – the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, and the Passion. In the first the people shout, “Hosanna”, “Blessed is he”. They welcome Him, and put down their cloaks and palm branches to form a carpet for the King of Israel. Yet, a few days later, the same crowd (with the influence of the Pharisees) are shouting, “Crucify him!” With which crowd do we want to associate?
