Palm Sunday! Sort of!

03.31.2012Since the end of Lent is coming up this Thursday, I wanted to go to a Sunday mass where it is not unbelievably crowded! Sunday as in Palm Sunday! What is Palm Sunday? You may ask yourself. Well, from what I know, Palm Sunday is a celebration used by many Christians, including Catholics, to mark Jesus's return to Jerusalem, days before his death and resurrection. You may ask yourself another question: Where does the word palm in Palm Sunday come from? You may say that palm comes from actual palm branches used by people of Jerusalem to greet Jesus by laying down palm branches in front of Him as He walked past many bystanders. I know today is not Sunday and I couldn't wait for tomorrow. So what solution did I come up with? I decided to go to mass this evening at Holy Angels, a local church right next to UD!
