Hosanna


Rev. T. Devaprasad



Hosanna is the remembrance of a mob that ran into the monotonous ways of religion, with olive leaves in their hand. Jesus’ triumphant journey on horseback is still remembered. The spread their clothes on the way to extend a warm welcome to an extra-ordinary savour as a part of their identity; A savour who scatters the proud, one who exalts them of low degree, one who fills the hungry with good things and sends away the rich empty. They recognise Him; a people that recognise the savour who is the personified form of mercy, assimilation and humble service. 


People get suffocated by the thoughts of life and livelihood in the present world where even the iota of morality has been lost. Power and conquest have become a part of Christianity. Christ, who has displayed his destiny’s blue print through his triumphant entry to the city, is a King with a difference. His means is not power, but embrace; not conquest, but compliance; not pride, but humility.


Salvation is the hope of the people. Everybody needs salvation, for every purpose. That is the reason why people shouted ’Hosanna’ (‘save us’). ‘Hosanna’ for a peaceful world.


Let us advance by means of experiences.
