|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?
