In Luke's telling of the triumphant entrance and palm parade in Jerusalem, the disciples shout, "Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest heaven!" When the Pharisees insist to Jesus that the disciples keep quiet, he replies, "I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out." (Luke 19:38-40)
A question for your reflection, creativity and prayer: what would the stones shout?
Why are you silent?
Why do you not cry out?
Do you not see who is here?
Our Lord, Jesus, has arrived!
He is here to change the world!
Do not keep silent!
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!
