It’s Palm Sunday 2021 and of course the first thing that comes to mind on Palm Sunday is PALM…
As we know, for us as Christians, the palm branches are associated with Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem.
And as John’s Gospel shares, “They took palm branches and went out to meet Him.”
Palm branches are a symbol of victory, triumph, peace and eternal life.
Many people have the tradition of bringing palm home, maybe making a cross from the palm or placing the palm behind that cross on the wall in their home.
But maybe there is another step in this tradition throughout the year… Let this Palm Sunday, let the palm we have at home, be a constant reminder of the gifts of peace and joy and eternal life, that Jesus brought to us and to the world.
Let this Palm Sunday be a reminder of our journey of life and faith that has so many ups and downs but a life when lived in union with Jesus Christ continues to bring: victory, triumph, peace and eternal life. Yesterday, today and tomorrow.
