At that moment he doesn’t allow that to keep him from being in that moment of victory, of triumph, of being embraced.  Jesus came to clarify and fulfill the law, and part of that was entering the city in triumph, victory despite what might come later.  Can we maybe learn from that, allow the small victories over sin, over pain etc.. to be what we are grateful for rather than fearing what might be, or what’s coming? Can we maybe have faith that whatever the storm we have to go through, even because of our own stupidity, if we meditate and pray we will find clarity to get through it, come out stronger?  I hope so, and this Holy Week Season gives us hope for exactly that.  Amen
