The Return of the King

FeastsPalm Sunday

by Bishop Robert BarronMarch 25, 2018

From the direction he enters Jerusalem to his mode of transport, we find again and again how he is the one intended to reclaim the temple and prove to the world that he is indeed the son of God, chosen to save us through his revolutionary example of love and forgiveness.
