10th-century homily on Palm Sunday

Sacramentally, we are approaching the final hours of the Lord Jesus' earthly ministry. On the feast of the glorious entry of our Lord & Saviour into the holy city of Jerusalem in 2014, would you like to hear a homily from approximately 970?

An unknown Anglo-Saxon bishop took this opportunity to speak on the Four Last Things – as was usual in sermons at that time. The relation of Jerusalem to Christ, the King and Lord of all, is starkly presented. Much is made of Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, along with Judas Iscariot and the destruction of Jerusalem 40 years after the Lord’s Ascension.

The homilies were first translated and published in 1874 in the English town of Blickling. The homily begins on page 64 here.

Any patristic thoughts on the Entry of the Lord into Jerusalem that anyone would like to share? Moving theology? Mysticism?  :)


Hopefully the sound is okay...

I will stop posting these if you don't like them. :)
