.- Bishop Mario Moronta of San Cristobal in Venezuela has invited the faithful to journey with Christ in the last moments of his earthly journey and to not be afraid to give witness to their faith.

“As Holy Week begins we prepare ourselves to accompany Jesus during the last moments of his earthly journey before his death.  We do it today acclaiming him with palm branches, the symbols of our faith to which we are not afraid to bear witness,” Bishop Moronta said during Mass on Palm Sunday.

He stressed that on Palm Sunday Christians reaffirm “that Christ is our hope and the way that leads us to the only authentic salvation: that which brings us into full and definitive communion with God.”

Bishop Moronta encouraged Christians in the work of evangelization because “if the way of Jesus leads to the fulfillment of the promise (of salvation) and reaches the cross in order to fulfill the hope of humanity, from the cross is born a new way that brings new hope, that which makes us cast out into the deep, to put our hands to the plow and look towards the horizon, to proclaim that He is the Lord.  We are pilgrims of hope and we know which way is ours,” he said.
