Hosanna to the Son of David

Updated: May 13

Dear All Saints and St Marys

“Hosanna” is the cry from the crowds as Jesus enters Jerusalem this Palm Sunday. It means “Please, Save Us”. It is a cry of adoration and praise but it is also something more than that. It is a beseeching, an earnest request, a heartfelt plea. The people of Jerusalem want delivering from their Roman oppressors, just as Moses delivered the Israelites from Egypt.


Days later desolation, anger and fear have set in and the cry from the crowds turns to “Crucify”. The King that they had hoped would save them had failed to deliver. And so we are invited this week in different ways across both All Saints and St Marys to enter again into God’s salvation story. It is one that saves and delivers but not in the way that anyone might expect. Come, draw near, look, watch, pray, weep and live the story of love, courage and hope.
