Passion Sunday - Being compassionate among suffering

The passion narrative of Luke emphasises the goodness and mercy of Jesus. He intervenes and severely rebukes Peter who countered the soldiers with his sword. Then he takes care of the wounded and healed him (Luke 22:51). 
 
The message that the evangelist wants to give is clear: the disciple not only cannot attack anyone but is always ready to remedy the troubles caused by others. He also takes care of those who did and still continues to want to hurt him.

Passion Sunday - Tinitiis sa ngalan ng pagmamahal!

Ang pagpapakasakit ni Hesus ay ang pinakadakilang pagpapahayag ng Pangi-noon ng pagmamahal sa atin. Sa pamamagitan ng pagpapakasakit ni Hesus sa krus tayo ay nagkamit ng kaligtasan. Pinaalalahanan tayo sa liturhiyang ito, na ang daan para sa kaligtasan ay ang pagsunod sa kalooban ng Diyos, pagpapakasakit para sa Diyos at malasakit para sa kapwa. Hindi natin makamtan ang kaligtasan kung hindi tayo tumahak sa daan ng pagpapakasakit, pagtitiis sa ngalan ng katotohanan tulad ni Kristo.
