As we are in our own journeys of Holy Week, may we ask ourselves the question, “Do we live in such a way that others would stop and stare?”

(In a good way, by the way!)

Do we love so radically that others, after watching, are struck by the ways that we love?

Do we give so selflessly that others, after noticing how we give, find themselves wanting to be more selfless?

Do we strive to seek justice for all, so that others, after hearing our calling for equality, find themselves questioning their approach?

Those are just a few of the reasons that the life of Jesus caused such a stir that people rushed to the streets to stare at his entrance into Jerusalem.

Could we live today so that others would stare at us?
