THE RED WEDDING
“Palm Sunday is deceptive. It doesn’t have the austere of Good Friday with the stripped altars. Palm Sunday is a party! …But Good Friday is still coming, and you can smell it.”
Join Fr. Brendan Kilcoyne for this year’s PALM SUNDAY homily where he discusses Holy Week’s opening scene of Jesus Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem.
“There’s something broken in us… There’s something wrong with us. Judas was with Christ the whole time and he still betrays Him.”
