Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday always falls on the Sunday before Easter Sunday. Can you believe Easter is round the corner?
(Even more scary as a parent, the school year is fast coming to an end!)

The feast celebrates Jesus' Triumphal entry into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey amidst cheers and acclaim from the population. Palm Sunday is marked by the distribution of palm leaves (often tied into crosses) to the assembled worshipers.

During the days following this triumphant entry, Jesus is betrayed by Judas (one of his disciples) and is crucified on the Cross. He dies, only to rise 3 days later. What a whirlwind of emotions for one week!

As we enter the Holy Week, here's another Youtube video that I hope you 'll like! Have a great Sunday!
