Did you know that in ancient times palm branches symbolized goodness and victory? Palm Sunday commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1–9), when palm branches were placed in his path, before his arrest on Holy Thursday and his crucifixion on Good Friday. For generations, Catholics have displayed their palms throughout the year to serve as a reminder of Christ's victory over death. In honor of this long-standing tradition. Fr. Lawrence blessed palm crosses for our families. Please expect one in your meal bags tomorrow and place it in a special location in your home for all to see. Christus Victor!
