Perhaps the Jewish people of Jesus' time saw all their hopes and wishes fulfilled in this scene: “Jesus riding on a donkey” meant that God had at last fulfilled Scripture. In 2015 we are waiting for Jesus' return. After so many years, it becomes all the more vital to cling onto the Words and promises of Jesus and not to allow ourselves to be driven by politics, by the many voices of our times and by our own very personal dreams and wishes.

“Render unto God the things that are God’s.” Praise, adoration, worship and thankfulness are all things which are God’s and God’s alone to be rendered to Him — perfectly, continually and with the utmost sincerity.

Even as we look towards the saints — our fathers and mothers, our grandparents, our aunts and uncles, perhaps even our children — as examples of the Christian life, that is, of the life lived by faith in the Son of God, we, too, are already the blessed. We, too, by virtue of our Baptisms into Christ’s life and death for us, live as the poor in spirit, hunger and thirst for righteousness, show mercy, are pure in heart, mourn and are comforted, are persecuted for Christ’s sake, are meek.

We may not fully understand how to import the man who is invited, but not chosen. We cannot fully understand why there are some to this day who are called, but not chosen. We cannot fully understand the ways of God. And we are not meant to.
