    Lord God of our salvation, that w

    ark 1

    1:1-1

    1 W

    hen they were approaching Jerusalem

    , at Bethphage and B

    ethany, near the Mount of O

    lives, Jesus sent tw

    o of his disciples and said to them, "G

    o into the village ahead of you, and im

    mediately as you enter it, you w

    ill find tied there a colt that has never been ridden; untie it and bring it. If anyone says to you, `W

    hy are you doing this?' just say this, `The Lord needs it

    and will send it back here im

    mediately.'" T

    hey went aw

    ay and found a colt tied near a door, outside in the street. A

    s they were untying it, som

    e of the bystanders said to them, "W

    hat are you doing, untying the colt?" T

    hey told them w

    hat Jesus had said; and they allowed them

    to take it. T

    hen they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it. M

    any people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut in the fields. T

    hen those who w

    ent ahead and those who follow

    ed were shouting,

    "Hosanna!

    Blessed is the one w

    ho comes in the nam

    e of the Lord! B

    lessed is the coming kingdom

    of our ancestor David!

    Hosanna in the highest heaven!"

    Then he entered Jerusalem

    and went into the tem

    ple; and when he had looked around at

    everything, as it was already late, he w

    ent out to Bethany w

    ith the twelve.

    The Celebrant then says the follow

    ing blessing: T

    he Lord be with you.

    People A

    nd

    also with

    you.

    Celebrant Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

    People It is righ

    t to give him

    than

    ks an

    d p

    raise. It is right to praise you, A

    lmighty G

    od, for the acts of love by which you have redeem

    ed us through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. O

    n this day he entered the holy city of Jerusalem in

    triumph, and w

    as proclaimed as K

    ing of kings by those who spread their garm

    ents and branches of palm

    along his way. Let those branches be for us signs of his victory, and grant

    that we w

    ho bear them in his nam

    e may ever hail him

    as our King, and follow

    him in the w

    ay that leads to eternal life; w

    ho lives and reigns in glory with you and the H

    oly Spirit, now and

    for ever. Am

    We take advantage of our access to clean drinking w

    ater. Most of us go

    to the faucet and get a glass of clean fresh water several tim

    es a day and never give the first thought to the im

    portance of water. W

    e have become

    so accustomed to having it, w

    e rarely think about what our lives w

    ould be like, if w

    e had to struggle to find water that w

    as even halfway safe to

    drink. Sadly, in many other countries across the globe, this a problem

    that is all too real. T

    hey are forced to drink water from

    rivers, streams,

    watering holes, and other w

    ater sources that are more than likely diseased or polluted.

    They are forced, often tim

    es, to bathe and cook with this sam

    e dirty water.
