Today is Palm Sunday, which is a Christian holiday that celebrates the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The entry of Jesus into Jerusalem is known as his triumphal entry. This is because it was a time when Jesus was able to finally triumph and carry out his work of redemption. For this reason, the Catholic Church celebrates Palm Sunday as a special day, and people pray and attend special ceremonies to commemorate this event.
The day of Palm Sunday is the third Sunday of Lent, the period leading up to Easter. It is a time when the Church prepares for the Easter season, and people observe a period of fasting and abstinence to give thanks for the coming of spring. Catholics observe the Easter Triduum to remember the three days that Jesus was in the tomb, on Resurrection Sunday, the day of his Ascension and on the day of his Second Coming.
Palm Sunday falls on the last Sunday of the Lenten season, and so it is a time when we remember the triumph of Jesus over death. It is also a time when Catholics reflect on the events of Jesus’s life leading up to this time. In this article, you will learn more about Palm Sunday, its significance in the Church, and some prayers you can say during this holiday.
