Homily from Palm Sunday.

“Here is a God who knows our hearts. He doesn’t need anyone to teach Him about us. …He knows how weak I am. But He knows how strong He is. He knows that on my bad days and on my average days, I will choose sin. But He also knows that He is greater than my sin. He knows that at the beginning of the meal I can say, ‘Jesus, if I have to die with you I will.’ Shortly after that I will say, ‘I don’t know Him. I’ve never even met Him. I don’t even know what you’re talking about. I’ve never heard of Jesus.’ He knows that about you already. And yet, He trusts you. And He trusts me. What a crazy, insane God. Our hearts are broken. But He is greater than our heart.”
