PalmSunday2016These passages are part of the section of Luke’s Gospel that was passed over at the Cathedral of St. Patrick in NYC today:

“This is my body which will be given for you; do this as a memorial of me.
This cup is the new covenant in my blood which will be poured out for you.
And yet, here with me on the table is the hand of the man who betrays me. The Son of Man does indeed go to his fate even as it has been decreed, but alas for that man by whom he is betrayed!” Luke 22:14-23:56

Today, in many quarters, the faith is not being lived or passed on. One reason is because the Gospel is not being meditated on, understood, and lived.
