Truly The Son of God

Serving a parish that doesn’t utilize texts of the Passion narratives in the pews, we instead offer the people a sung acclamation at key moments during the proclamation. Palm Sunday cycle C seems to be a no-brainer with the Taize refrain “Jesus, Remember Me.” I don’t feel chained to historical or literary accuracy, but Mark’s Gospel just doesn’t seem to fit that text. Instead we used an echo from another Passion testimony, the centurion:

For Good Friday, we’ll use the first line of the hymn, “Let all mortal flesh keep silence, and with fear and trembling stand.”

Anybody want to stick up for “Crucify him!”?
