Why do we wave palms on Palm Sunday?

Uncategorized Add comments

Palm Sunday is the start of the Holy Week. It is the time of the year when Catholic believers are obligatory called to do penance and repent. Although asking forgiveness should be remembered and done all the time, but Holy Week is a time when we required to do so.

Yesterday was Palm Sunday. In the Bible, the said event is written in the books of Matthew 21:1-7, Mark 11:1-7, Luke 19:29-35 and John 12:12-16. In the Children’s Bible (Retold by Anne de Graaf) I bought for my daughter, the said event was entitled the Big Parade. It was the day when Jesus and his disciples entered Jerusalem. Jesus was followed with a big crowd waving palm branches. They saw Jesus as their king, the one who might deliver them from the Romans.

Today, we are blessed because we have been freed not only from the Romans but from our sins. We are blessed that our king who is loving and kind has saved us all. There is no reason for us to be afraid or lonely for Jesus has saved us.

Holy week is a reminder of what Jesus went through to save us. There is no reason for us to be sad on Good Friday but instead we should be thankful to God for giving us, Jesus. Holy week is a reminder that there would never be another Jesus and we should value what He has done for all of us. It is a reminder that we didn’t have to be nailed down to the cross because a king and a one true God had done that for us.

What He is asking for us in return is to do good and stay away from sins. I know that it is easier said than done. But it is possible and I believe that we can do it. We just need to pray and pray and pray.

Ciao! :)
