The time is drawing closer. The crucifixion is steadily approaching. The disciples may have had some inkling that this week in Jerusalem would be different. But, the Gospels tell us they were not at all prepared. They were not truly ready to confront the weight of what it meant to be the leaders of the Church. Only time would prove it. And now, history has shown that they were up to the task.
It is only Tuesday. The seriousness of what will take place has not yet taken hold. The normal ebb and flow of life continues.
