In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Glory to Jesus Christ! [Glory to him forever!]

I greet you on this great feast of the Entrance of our Lord into Jerusalem, during which we begin the process of moving toward his death, burial, and resurrection. It seems almost antithetical to the spirit in which we will enter that those somber days, those dark days, where we will see Jesus betrayed by his disciples, where we see him delivered into the hands of lawless men, and we’ll see him being hung on a cross, reviled by his own creation, spit in the face, beaten, whipped, and left for dead; we’ll see…

I’m recording this on Friday afternoon, April 3. This is Good Friday for Western Christians, and I’m trying to formulate some thoughts about what’s happened to me in the last couple of days.

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. [Amen.]

How can one find the words, the appropriate words, to speak of one who was such a master of words? For Fr. Thomas could speak so eloquently and so inspiringly, at length, in homilies and lectures,  anecdotes and reminiscences—for he was a master story-teller, raconteur, as well as a master preacher and teacher—and also, briefly, in his maxims, profoundly but also simply, always speaking the truth in love, in books and more recently in apparently endless podcasts.
