Tell the daughter of Zion, “Behold, your King is coming to you, Lowly, and sitting on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.”‘ Matthew 21:5 . “He came ‘lowly’ so you would not fear his greatness, but you would rather love his gentleness. He will not come riding a gold chariot, and neither will he be clothed in silk, nor riding a horse of fire like those ready to fight in animosity. But he will come on a donkey, a friend to peace and serenity.” St John Chrysostom
