As the spring season is now upon us and Easter week approaches, we take the time and notion to observe Palm Sunday, the day of Jesus’ last Earthly triumph before fulfilling God’s ultimate destiny as Christ the Savior.
Palm Sunday celebrates the significance of Jesus’ triumphant entry into the city of Jerusalem before His crucifixion and resurrection.
The Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday, which is April 2 this year, and the period lasts until Holy Saturday, April 8, which is the day before Easter Sunday, April 9.
We celebrated Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week this morning with a simple in-home Bible scripture reading and Communion. We pray that we may have peace in the Nation and the World during the Passover and Easter celebrations.
Later in the day, we will have a Palm Sunday feast consisting of a nice Casserole made in part from a recently smoked pork shoulder roast. We had this meal last Summer and it got rave reviews from the two of us and our dogs.
Enjoy your Palm Sunday and the week ahead.
