Verbø Sekmadienis !

"I am not the one striking,
The Palm is striking
You are not in pain
The Palm is in pain
Soon it will be Easter !"

The forsythia is in bloom in New York and so are the devotees of Our Lady of Vilnius on Broome Street. The air is fresh and sweet today, even outside the Holland Tunnel where the Jersey-bound motorists will idle and wonder at the flags, American and Lithuanian that will whip around in the wind. They'll watch the small group of people, joyful despite being outside the walls of their spiritual home.

I am not able to be among them today, but as I attend noon Mass I will unite with them in prayer for the restoration of our home.
