Palm Sunday 2011 "Your will be done": the God-Man gives Himself on the Cross in commitment greater than which cannot be imagined


"Father, not as I will, but as you will".

We live in a society that glorifies a lack of commitment. The ideal life is one we are told in which all options remain open to us at all times despite any promises we may have made in the past.

By necessity every choice we make eliminates other choices. I cannot stay up all night playing video games on Saturday and then get up refreshed and happy to attend holy Mass on Sunday in obedience to the commandment of God that thus I might remain in a state of grace. I cannot asked the person who is speaking to me to believe I am listening if I am texting while she talks. I cannot invest in real relationships if I spend my free time in the virtual world of the internet where I cannot even be sure someone is reading my posts on Facebook.
