The Easter Holy Week is revered as the most Holy Week in the Christian faith calendar after Christmas. The week begins with Palm Sunday that signifies the arrival of Christ in Jerusalem. Upon his entrance the local community blessed Jesus’ arrival with palms, hence the naming of Palm Sunday. This year Palm Sunday may be quite different as worshippers are within their homes, and finding ways to continue to practice their faith and creating a sense of belonging with virtual / on-line church sermons. For this I would continue to commend all who are keeping faith-based practices alive, to benefit all who choose to keep faith alive within their homes.
we are called to walk within. To find and keep faith alive within, the temple of the body and soul. #ShaziBlog #Quote #PalmSunday #HolyWeekTweet
This year I did not have any Palms, but I found some greenery within a flower bouquet and decided to make the symbol of a cross that actually do look a lot like a Palms. Palms are known to symbolize peace, victory and a great sign of respect. On this day instead of going out, we are called to walk within. To find and keep faith alive within, the temple of the body and soul.
