The Eighth Sunday "Hosaena=ሆሳዕና":
Savior: Palm Sunday
(St John 12: 12-19)
Blessed is he who comes in the Name of the Lord; We bless you from the house of the Lord.
God is the Lord and has appeared unto us. Psalm 117: 26, 27
This is the eighth and final Sunday in the Great Lent Fast and is called Hosanna on Palm Sunday. This day is to commemorate our Lord's final journey into Jerusalem riding on a colt the foal of a donkey whilst the people acknowledged him as the son of David, King, coming in the name of the Lord and placing palms under him. The whole event teaches us that Christ our Lord the good shepherd was about to lay down his life for the sheep. Christ had observed all the laws and was about to observe the Passover feast in Jerusalem and fulfill all righteousness. For Christ is to become our Passover, a pure sacrifice. The Lamb of God is about to be offered for us all and become the true eternal king of body soul and spirit. This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: "Say to the Daughter of Zion , 'See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey." The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them. Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:
"Hosanna to the Son of David!
'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!'
Hosanna in the highest!"
Yes come all of you to see the wonderful thing which was done in the house of prayer when the high priest entered within the veil of which all said that it was the dwelling place of the Deity and the concealing of all thoughts. The lord of lords and spirits entered therein riding up one the lowly colt of an ass.He revealed His Divinity to all the infants who said, blessed is the He who comes in the name of the Lord, and blessed are you, Lord, God of gods, and king of Israel.
