Holy Week, which culminates on Easter Sunday, began today with Palm Sunday.

In the simplest of terms, Palm Sunday is an occasion for reflecting on the final week of Jesus’ life. It is a time for Christians to prepare their hearts for the agony of Jesus’ Passion and the joy of His Resurrection, as described in “Share Faith.”

    Anyone else notice a lot of typos lately in article titles - "kicks "of" Easter week?

    When I was a kid, we spent Palm Sunday in church and in Sunday School learning the meaning of the palms, i.e., as Jesus entered Jerusalem riding a donkey, the people spread palm leaves before him and chanted, "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord."

    Now we have toddlers on tricycles who think its all a game.
