Lectio for Lent: Palm Sunday

Salvador Dali's Sacrament of the Last Supper
National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

NOTE: Each week during Lent, I am posting a set of reflection questions based on the Sunday Gospel. There are no "answers." The questions are simply meant to help the reader (or group of readers) engage the Scripture for the corresponding week in the context of the Church's observance of Lent. Ultimately, the goal is to help one meditate on the following questions: What does this text mean for me? What is God saying to me through his Word--here and now? How ought I respond to it? I encourage you to spend some time reading and thinking about the Gospel passages indicated before turning to the reflection questions here. In the process, if you discern the "still, small voice" of God speaking to your heart and leading you into prayer, then go with it! -- Br. Francis
The Passion of Jesus Christ
(Matthew 26:14--27:66)
As you read/listen to the Passion on this Palm Sunday, what is it about the phrases "this is my body" (spoken at the Last Supper) and "[Jesus] gave up his spirit (on the cross) that has meaning for you?
How do you live it out?
