Celebrating Palm Sunday The Right Way

How did you guys celebrate Palm Sunday?

The majority of Catholics observe and celebrate Palm Sunday, but not a lot of us actually know what the day is really for. Most of us just go to Mass, receive and take the blessed palms home, and hang them around the house. Although these are parts of the celebration of Palm Sunday, there are more important things that need to be done during this blessed day.

Aside from taking part in the ceremonies and festivities of this day and getting , we must also spend time reflecting on the final week of Jesus’ life. Palm Sunday should not only be a day for enjoyment; instead, it should be a time for us to prepare our hearts for the Holy Week; a time to internalize and appreciate the unfathomable love of God for all of us.
