Humble and riding on a donkey …

UnknownHumble and riding on a donkey, we greet you. Acclaimed by the crowds and carolled by children, we cheer you. Moving from the peace of the countryside to the corridors of power, we salute you, Christ our Lord. You are giving the beasts of burden a new dignity; you are giving majesty a new face; you are giving those who long for redemption a new song to sing. With them, with heart and voice, we shout ‘Hosanna!”

[Stages on the Way: Worship Resources for Lent, Holy Week and Easter, p. 77]
