Almighty ever-living God,
who as an example of humility for the human race to follow
caused our Saviour to take flesh and submit to the Cross,
graciously grant that we may heed his lesson of patient suffering
and so merit a share in his Resurrection.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
The Collect for Palm Sunday reminded of Christ’s coming to be with us so we might be with him, and for ever.
The opportunities are many this week for us to attend afresh to the lesson Christ gives, so as to benefit from the victory he wins.
Let us make the most of them by attending the services of Holy Week, preparing for them, and allowing some time of quiet reflection after them.
