April 1, 2010:

On Palm Sunday, the Sunday that begins Holy Week, and again on Good Friday, Catholic Christians read the passion narrative of Jesus - his arrest, trial, death, and burial. This year, as I pondered Luke's gospel, it struck me that we read all passion narratives only so far as Jesus' death and burial. Of course, it makes sense since Easter Sunday is still ahead of us, and we cannot go into celebratory mode too early. But, I thought it a bit odd to read only as far as the death and burial when we all know the end of the story.
