Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it; as it is written: ‘Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion. Look, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt!’
Through the eyes of the world this is a ridiculous picture. The powerful of this world travel with an army of security guards. No one can approach them especially not those without any influence. But the ways of God are a paradox. You my Jesus, as old Simeon prophesied, are a sign of contradiction. You are meek and gentle of heart and you promise that the meek will inherit the earth. You vanquished evil through an instrument of shame and torture. When You say, "Do not fear." We can trust You completely and be unafraid.
Teach me to be truly humble Lord. Give me a heart like Yours and Mother Mary's. Amen.
