Palm Sunday”  –  10th. April 2022.

First Reading:

A Reading from the Prophet Isaiah:

The Lord has given me a disciple’s tongue. So that I may know how to reply to the wearied

he provides me with speech.  Each morning he wakes me to hear, to listen like a disciple.

The Lord has opened my ear.   For my part, I made no resistance,  neither did I turn away.

I offered my back to those who struck me, my cheeks to those who tore at my beard;

I did not cover my face  against insult and spittle.   The Lord comes to my help,

so that I am untouched by the insults.  So, too, I set my face like flint;  I know I shall not be shamed.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm:  

Response:         My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

All who see me deride me.

They curl their lips, they toss their heads.

‘He trusted in the Lord, let him save him;

let him release him if this is his friend.’               R.

Many dogs have surrounded me,

a band of the wicked beset me.

They tear holes in my hands and my feet

I can count every one of my bones.                     R.

They divide my clothing among them.

They cast lots for my robe.

O Lord, do not leave me alone,

my strength, make haste to help me!                   R.

I will tell of your name to my brethren

and praise you where they are assembled.

‘You who fear the Lord give him praise;

all sons of Jacob, give him glory.

Revere him, Israel’s sons.                                    R.

Second Reading:

A Reading from St. Paul’s Letter to the Philippians:

His state was divine, yet Christ Jesus did not cling to his equality with God but emptied himself to assume the condition of a slave  and became as men are; and being as all men are, he was humbler yet, even to accepting death,  death on a cross.

But God raised him high and gave him the name  which is above all other names so that all beings in the heavens, on earth and in the underworld, should bend the knee at the name of Jesus  and that every tongue should acclaim Jesus Christ as Lord,  to the glory of God the Father.

The Word of the Lord.

Gospel Acclamation:

Praise to you, O Christ, king of eternal glory!

Christ was humbler yet,

even to accepting death, death on a cross.

But God raised him high

and gave him the name which is above all names.

Praise to you, O Christ, king of eternal glory!


The Passion of Jesus Christ according to Luke: 22:14 – 23:56


This is the greatest week in the Church’s year.  We call it Holy Week because Jesus made it holy by his death. He died because of human evil and human sinfulness.  Since we are all sinners, each of us can truthfully say that we had a hand in his death.  But we must never forget that he died for love of us.  We celebrate Jesus’ Resurrection at Easter that we may have new hope and new life.  “Christ has died,  Christ has Risen,  Christ will come again.”Aghaviller Parish Newsletter
