The Thunderous Silence

Palm Sunday is a day of paradox, the most striking of which is the contrast between the cacophony of human noise and the thunderous silence of God. Holy Week bids us enter in this holy mystery: that Jesus inhabits both sides of this defining contrast, and he does it for the sake of the whole world.

At three o’clock Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Mark 15:34
