Palm Sunday

This morning we had a beautiful sunny Sunday. It was a Palm Sunday when Christians celebrate the Triumphal Entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, the week before his death and resurrection.  Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday. The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him with waving palm branches, and by covering his path with palm branches. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross.
As a Catholic, I went to an early mass which included procession with the blessing of olive tree branches. It was really beautiful and spiritual. It made me feel happy that I started my day with something peaceful and meaningful. I put those blessed branches in a vase in my room where they will stay until next year's Palm Sunday.

I wish you a blessed and peaceful Sunday and successful week.
