the humble King

Palm Sunday, 14 April 2019: Philippians 2:6-11; Luke 19:28-40 ~ the humble King

O God of eternal glory, you anointed Jesus, your servant, to bear our sins, to encourage the weary, to raise up and restore the fallen. Keep before our eyes the splendour of the paschal mystery of Christ, and, by our sharing in the passion and resurrection, seal our lives with the victorious sign of his obedience and exaltation. We ask this through Christ, our Savior, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, holy and mighty God for ever and ever. Amen.
