The passover crowd was conditioned by what they had been taught about the Messianic Prophecies. They did not know what to do when what they expected didn't show up.

Spiritual Quotes

"Our attitude towards evil must be freed from hatred, and has itself need to be enlightened in character...Satan rejoices when he succeeds in inspiring us with diabolical feelings to himself. It is he who wins when his own methods are used against himself...A continual denunciation of evil and its agents merely encourages its growth in the world - a truth sufficiently revealed in the Gospels, but to which we are persistently blind."

          - Berdayev, Freedom and the Spirit, p. 182

The Doorway to Mystery: On Palm Sunday

April 13, 2014 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
The passover crowd was conditioned by what they had been taught about the Messianic Prophecies. They did not know what to do when what they expected didn't show up. Who of us wants a suffering servant for a Messiah instead of a new emperor. Read more »

On the Sunday of St. Mary of Egypt

April 09, 2014 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
It is a Sunday of relation, of discovery, of disclosure, of transformation. Taken metaphorically, its meaning is sheer enlightenment. If we get caught up in the details of the literal story, we lose the meaning of her story. Literalism is a dead end when speaking of scripture or the spiritual life. Taken as a metaphor, then, her story has great meaning; it is relevant; it is a metaphor for the spiritual life as lived by all who decide to walk that path. Read more »
