The chief priests and the teachers of the Law mocked him saying to one another, «The man who saved others cannot save himself. Let's see the Messiah, the king of Israel, come down from his cross and then we will believe in him».
Today, we live a synthesis of the Holy Week: Mass begins with the narrative of the triumphal entrance of Jesus in Jerusalem and during the proclamation of the Gospel we hear the Passion of the Lord according to Mark. Jesus enters the Holy City being praised by the crowd and will leave receiving insults. What a contrast!
—The triumph of God is consummated in the Cross: God triumphs over evil by “returning good for evil”. Thus reigns Jesus!
