Happy Palm Sunday To All Ontopnaijites!

 

Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter, on which Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem is celebrated in many Christian churches by processions in which branches of palms are carried.

It is the day that we remember and celebrate the day Jesus entered into Jerusalem as Savior and King. As Jesus rode a donkey into the town of Jerusalem a large crowd gathered and laid palm branches and their clocks across the road, giving Jesus royal treatment. The hundreds of people shouted “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

Palm Sunday marks the first day of Holy Week , the last week of the Christian solemn season of Lent that precedes the arrival of Eastertide .

It was recorded in the four gospels (Matthew 21:1-9, Mark 11:1-10, Luke 19: 28-39, John 12: 12-18). His entrance to Jerusalem is the fulfillment of the prophecy from Zechariah 9:9. Zechariah prophesied to Israel that their King would be coming triumphantly to them riding on a colt, the foal of a donkey instead of war horse..

How are you & your church celebrating this Palm Sunday in isolation, without the usual procession?? .. how would churches gather dried palms for the next Ash Wednesday, since it’s usually the ones blessed on Palm Sundays
