Today Jesus rides triumphant into Jerusalem knowing full well it would lead to his death. Let us show our love for God just as the women who spent 300 days wages to anoint the feet of Jesus before his death. It is all about a humble Love triumphing over the energy centers of this world: power/control, affection/esteem/pleasure, safety/security, and over identification with our group. May our journey with Jesus this Holy Week make us more like him.
