“As Lent is the time for greater love, listen to Jesus’ thirst….’Repent and believe’ Jesus tells us. What do we repent? Our indifference, our hardness of heart. What are we to believe? Jesus thirsts even now, in your heart and in the poor -- He knows your weakness. He wants only your love, wants only the chance to love you.” -  Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

What is Palm Sunday?

Palm Sunday Holy week begins next Sunday, March 29th, with Palm Sunday, also known as Passion Sunday. As Catholics begin Mass holding and blessing new palms, it reminds us of Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem. At the time, the people believed that Jesus was a prophet from God and they called out “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who come in the name of the Lord!” The palms were symbols of goodness and victory!
