Passion Sunday- Holy Week Begins
Today is Palm Sunday, when we begin the solemn week before Easter.
This week will be one of intensified reflection on the Passion and Death of Christ.
The Week is crowned on Easter Sunday when we celebrate His Glorious Resurrection and triumph over sin and death.
We have many traditions in our house hold to mark the special days of Holy Week.
Today we attended Mass and listened to the Passion narrative. We got the palms that we display in the house all year.
Tonight we will watch the entry into Jerusalem in the movie "Jesus of Nazareth". We use the movie at different times all week.
I am hoping to get to mass every morning this week.
We will also watch "The Passion", just Tim and I, on Good Friday.
There is so much to think about and reflect on in these days leading up to Easter.
Many, many blessings that we receive during our Lenten time of sacrifice, and the blessings that we share in the Easter season afterward.
I hope that all have a blessed Holy Week, and find something extra and special to make this time as meaningful as possible.
