As we return to Mark for Palm/Passion Sunday, it is striking that even Mark has slowed down the action a bit, filling in details about Jesus’ instructions to the disciples and the response of the bystanders who questioned them when they went to find the colt for Jesus to ride. During Holy Week, we, like Mark, slow time down so that we can live into the rhythms and observe the details of these few seemingly ordinary days that are, in fact, the culmination of Jesus’ salvific work in and for the world.
