Palm Sunday: The “Reckless Love” of Jesus

Palm Sunday 2023. Holy Week begins in a world full of violence, suffering, and “every form of loneliness and isolation.” Our hope in the midst of all this overwhelming misery is in the “reckless love” of Jesus Christ. Pope Francis urges us to “implore this grace: to love Jesus in His abandonment and to love Jesus in [those who are] abandoned”—those who are “rejected and excluded,” who are therefore “living icons of Christ” in His “forsakenness,” and who are “all around us.”
