Palm Sunday

"Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!"
(Luke 19:38)

Palm Sunday is the sixth Sunday of Lent and the last Sunday before Easter. Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.

Jesus rode into town on a donkey as exuberant crowds hailed him as the Messiah and spread out palm branches and cloaks in his path. Its heavenly nature as an event is anchored on the observation that this was predicted to happen exactly as it did 400 years earlier (Book of Daniel 9: 25-26). This was fulfilled to the exact day and manner as prophesied, strengthening the Christian premise that nothing happens in God's universe by accident. Everything is the fulfillment of Divine will.

I begin Holy Week with a prayer for all my friends and family.
May the Lord always bless you and keep you safe in the palm of His hands.

You have been the angels in my life.

I am forever grateful for your continued support and concern.

I pray that the coming week will allow us all to meditate upon God's amazing grace and mercy .
