Last Sunday, the Church around the world will celebrated Palm Sunday beginning the Holy Week during which we remembered Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem, where he was welcomed with shouts of love only to be killed amid shouts of hate seven days later.
Today, we again pause our journey through the Psalms of Ascent to begin our reflection on the coming week’s solemnity. Today’s word of encouragement and gentle challenge comes from part of the message of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem as recorded by St. John.
When the large crowd of the Jews learned that Jesus was there, they came, not only on account of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. So the chief priests made plans to put Lazarus to death as well, because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and believing in Jesus.

One Million Reasons to smile!
Gala Committee Members gather in front of a sample bus which will be purchased with proceeds from this year’s Gala.
The Guardian Angels Gala committee has a million reasons to smile these days, as a recent report showed that $1,000,000 has been raised at GA Gala’s over the past 15 years!
“It’s an amazing accomplishment when you think about the investment that donors have gifted to the seniors in our community through these events. If not for these dollars, Guardian Angels buildings and services would look significantly different than they do today” said Dan Dixon, President and CEO of Guardian Angels. “Proceeds from past Galas have funded the Care Center Capitol Campaign, including the recent Bailey Lane renovation, buses, Club GA Wellness Center, and numerous pieces of equipment and furnishings that benefit our seniors and their families. We’re thankful and humbled.”
A huge thank you to the Gala Committee, volunteers, and staff who work diligently to make these events a success, and thanks to the generosity of our supporters.
