Palm Sunday is the final Sunday in Lent. It's the beginning of Holy Week and helps us remember the triumphant arrival of Jesus into the town of Jerusalem.
This Sunday, we will receive palms in Mass. Palms are a symbol of peace and victory. For moms with young children in Mass, the symbolism of the palms may be lost as we have to make sure no one gets poke in the eye or making sure no one is using them as a light saber. We always turn the palms into crosses. Of course, there are lots of fancier ways to display the palms too. Lacy at Catholic Icing has lots of beautiful ideas to display the palms. I love the Palm Roses.
As we head into this important week, I pray that we can reflect and draw closer to Jesus.
Dearly Beloved, in Holy Week, when the most bitter sufferings of Jesus Christ, are put before us by the liturgy, the Church invites us to come to Calvary and follow in the blood stained footsteps of the Divine Redeemer, to carry the Cross willingly with Him, to reproduce in our hearts His spirit of expiation and atonement, and to die together in Him.
We ought to glory in the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ in whom is our salvation, life, and resurrection.
Let Us Pray.
All powerful eternal God, You have chosen to give all mankind a model of humility. our Savoir took on our flesh, and subjected Himself to the Cross. Grant us the grace to preserve faithfully the lessons He has given us in His Passion and to have a share in His resurrection. This we ask of you through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son.
Till Next Time,
