Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday, in the Christian calendar, the Sunday before Easter, sixth and last Sunday in Lent, and the first day of Holy Week. It recalls the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem riding upon an ass, when his followers shouted “Hosanna” and scattered palms in his path. In the Roman Catholic and some Protestant churches, ceremonies of the day are the blessing and distribution of crosses made from palm leaves and the recitation of one of the three synoptic accounts of the Passion. Many wear crosses made of the palm.

I grew up in a very religious family so we are always active in any church holidays. I always remember Palm Sunday as it has a very long Gospel. During this time of the year, we always bring palms to the church to be blessed. When we get home we put a couple of cross made from the palm and put it in our altar.

I do miss Christian celebrations. I think I learn to accept the fact that religion is not very well practiced where I am. As long as my faith is still the same and I still believe in God, I know I am still a good Christian.

May we all repent as we are celebrating the first day of Holy Week. May we all learn to forgive those who have wronged us.

I love Palm Sunday. Very few Protestant churches do anything with it in the US. I miss that. There were some great hymns to celebrate it.

I was not able to attend palm sunday because I was working early and when home late in the afternoon. I miss it Lu especially that I always went to churh almost every sunday here in LA when I am not working or when I work the night shift.

Hope your doing well my friend and your family as well.
