PALM SUNDAY: The Beginning of Holy Week

PALM SUNDAY: The Beginning of Holy Week

Christians around the world receive palm fronds today in many churches to symbolize the palms that were waved at Jesus and were laid in his path as he made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem the week before his death and resurrection.

Referred to in many churches as Passion Sunday, Palm Sunday falls the week prior to Easter and marks the beginning of Holy Week, the final week of Lent.

Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.
Psalms 118:26
