Filipinos Celebrate Palm Sunday

As a Catholic nation, we give honor to our faith especially during a religious activity like the holy week. As part of this faith, we bring palms to commemorate the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We missed the Sunday masses before but I asked my family to attend the Palm Sunday Mass and brought with us some religious symbols made from palms.

Tradition says blessed palms bring protection to the household from evil spirits but the religious say it is a reminder that we give praise and recognition to Jesus as our Savior. Whatever is the conviction for Palm Sunday, we simply acknowledge as family that holy week is a season for love and forgiveness.
