“The glory of Holy Week”
21 hours ago by Kevin Keenan

Bishop Malone processes on Palm Sunday

Bishop Richard J. Malone used his homily at the start of Holy Week at St. Joseph Cathedral in downtown Buffalo, to remind worshipers, “God’s holy word on Palm Sunday is a meditation on the meaning of suffering in God’s plan of salvation."

Constant anxiety in our lives can leave us weary, the bishop said.  “The glory of this Holy Week, in God’s loving design, strangely, suffering can have power to yield new life.”  

 

The bishop noted there is new life for us too, if we walk with Jesus.
