Palm Sunday.

Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. The gospels record the arrival of Jesus riding into the city on a donkey, while the crowds spread their cloaks and palm branches on the street and shouted "Hosanna to the Son of David" and "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord" to honor him as their long-awaited Messiah and King.

Palm Sunday is the beginning of Holy Week and a time for Christians to prepare their hearts for the agony of His Passion and the joy of His Resurrection.

As we begin Holy Week I plan to take a break from blogging. I want to set this week aside, clear my plate of distractions and spend time reflecting on the final week of Jesus' life.

In His name,
