13th April: Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord

Mt 21: 1 – 11, Isa 50: 4 – 7, Phil 2: 6 – 11, Mt 26: 14 – 27: 66


Palm Sunday is one of only two occasions during the year, the other being Good Friday, of course, when you have the opportunity not just to hear the Gospel, but to take part in it.  So, as you took your part, as you voiced so many characters during this morning’s proclamation of the Passion, which part was most significant for you?


Holy Week Meditation1

My name is Claudia Procula.  You do not know me, but you might have heard something about me.


I had a very happy childhood.  My parents were members of noble Roman families, both related to the Emperor Augustus and I was raised by a wonderful governess who taught me to read and write and also to reckon.  I had special tutors who taught me to embroider and to make lace, and others who taught me to play the tibia and cithara.  As I grew into my teenage years I was given extra lessons in deportment, elocution and etiquette so that I would be ready to enter Roman society when I was old enough.


Holy Week Meditation 2

Hello!  My name is Quintus, no fancy second names like Marcus Aurelius, just Quintus, and I’m one of the Emperor Tiberius’ finest, or at least that’s what they tell me!  I am a Roman soldier, one of three thousand stationed in this god-forsaken place under the command of the Prefect, Pontius Pilate.


I never wanted to be a soldier, and I certainly don’t want to be a soldier here and now, but sometimes you don’t get a choice.  We were a poor family when I was growing up.  Well, I say a family, but my mother could never tell me who my father was, and all my brothers and sisters looked remarkably different from one another.  I’m sure that you all know sufficient Latin to realise that my name, Quintus, simply means ‘the fifth one’ – that’s how important children were in our ‘family’.  There was never any question of school: that was for the rich and the privileged.  My days were spent playing in the street or begging for scraps of food or the odd coin or two.  Ours was very much a hand to mouth existence.
