It's Palm Sunday!

2013 Palm Sunday, Pope Francis

Welcome to Palm Sunday!

This is the last Sunday in Lent, and begins Holy Week.  If you have been faithful to your Lenten penance, great!  One more week!  If you've slipped up, it's not too late!  Renew your penance for Holy Week.   

Today we celebrate our Lord's praised entry into Jerusalem, and we prepare for His Passion, yet to come.

Keep in mind, regardless of your penance, on Good Friday it is a day of abstinence from meat AND a day of fasting.  You are allowed one full, but meager meal, and two smaller ones and the two smaller ones cannot add up to the one full meal.  

May God richly bless you this Holy Week. 

What plans do you have?  Are you going to Maundy (Holy) Thursday Mass?  Good Friday?   Easter Vigil?  Extra-Ordinary (Traditional Latin) Rite?

1) Please respond ON TOPIC to the article at hand.
2) Posts more than 4 weeks old are set to automatically save new comments for moderation - so your comment may not show up immediately if you're responding to an older post.
3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
