Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday begins the Holy week leading to Easter and the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the
dead. This Sunday observes the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem that was marked by the
crowds, who were in Jerusalem for Passover, waving palm branches and proclaiming him as the
messianic king.  The Gospels tell us that Jesus rode into the city on a donkey, enacting the prophecy
of Zechariah 9:9, and in so doing emphasized the humility that was to characterize the Kingdom he
proclaimed.

Zechariah 9:9
Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion!
Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle
and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.


This Sunday is also known as Passion Sunday to commemorate the beginning of Holy Week and
Jesus= final agonizing journey to the cross. The English word passion comes from a Latin word that
means "to suffer".
