Approaching The Cross

Approaching The Cross

Palm Sunday is this Sunday and the last week of the Lenten Season. Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem.

As Jesus entered into the city, people spread palm branches at his feet and called him "Hosanna" and "savior." Palm branches were considered as symbols of victory and triumph and are still used today in this special remembrance.

Now begins Holy Week that ends to Easter in remembrance of Jesus' time in Jerusalem before he died and, was resurrected.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead..” 1 Peter 1:3
