Palm Sunday 2010: What is Palm Sunday?

August 4, 2014 by · 1 Comment 

Today, March 28, 2010, is the start of the Lenten Season among Catholics called Palm Sunday. I attended the mass today and heard the priest’s sermon about the sacrifices of Jesus Christ just to save us all from our sins. He mentioned the gospel about the passion of Christ from scourging at the pillars, carrying of the cross, up to His death in the cross.

Palm Sunday commemorates the entry of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem before his Passion. According to the priest’s sermon which I heard just hours away, there was this contrasting reality about the people welcoming Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem as against the same people who brought Him into His sufferings.

According to most Catholics’ tradition during Palm Sunday, palm fronds are blessed by the priest in charge of the mass. These same palm fronds are saved by many churches to be used in next year’s Ash Wednesday. Some Catholics believed that since these palm fronds are sacramental after being blessed by the priest, they placed it in their doors as a protection against bad spirits.

Palm Sunday is the time to reflect, commemorate, and ask for the forgiveness of our sins. Jesus Christ sacrificed in order to save us from our sins as He said: “Blessed is he who comes in the Name of the Lord.”

    Palm Sunday is for ALL who name the name of Christ and follow Jesus as their Lord and Savior; religious affiliation does not matter. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
