Hosanna – Pray, Save us! Or God, save us!

The triumphant entry. A foreshadowing of the praises in heaven. This is Jesus the prophet, from Nazareth in Galilee.

But its most critical point. God has come to save. We ask to be saved. From ourselves.

Jesus takes up the deepest of human worries:

“Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

All his senses cannot sense the Father, yet he is never closer to him.

Jesus is given to experience and recite Psalm 22. See link https://bible.usccb.org/bible/psalms/22

It ends in victory and praise.

Pray, save us!

God, save us!

Jesus, save us!

Peace be with you,

Deacon Gerry
