Palm Sunday

8.30 am – It is Palm Sunday and our choir is singing in another two hours. So here I am, waking up early to loosen my vocal chords. 🙂

What is Palm Sunday? My defination – This Sunday, we are cheering the arrival of Jesus into Jerusalem. We will be waving palm leaves in a procession. Few more days later, some of us will be asking for Jesus to be crucified. A sign of how weak our faith is, what hypocrites we are.

Some of us will take the palm leaves (those small palms leaves you find in your garden? not whole coconut leaves lah!) home and keep them till next year. Hahaha, someone said that some people believes that the palms will ward off evil spirits, which of course, is superstitious.

Palm Sunday (copy from BBC)
9 April 2006

The most solemn week of the Christian year, Holy week is the week leading up to Easter, and is the week during which Christians particularly remember the last week of Jesus’s life. Holy week begins on Palm Sunday.

Palm Sunday commemorates Christ’s triumphant arrival in Jerusalem to the cheers of the crowd.

The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem,

They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,


“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

“Blessed is the King of Israel!”

(John 12: 12-13)

Later in that week many of the people in that cheering crowd would be among those shouting that Jesus should be executed.
Our choir will be singing today, this coming Thursday (which is Maundy Thursday) and next Sunday on Easter. So, I hope all the practices and stuffs will keep me busy and out of trouble. 🙂 (you know, Holy Week, not supposed to wrtie so much nonsensical things. And hooray, the steaks and crabs are waiting for me next Sunday! Yippee!

To my brothers and sisters in Christ, having you been away from church? Now is the best time to return to the Lord. Easter is a new beginning. Start afresh! The Lord is waiting. God bless!

  2. Have a great week!! Spending time with the Holy one is the best time and there is no time that one would be able to compare then spending it with the Father.. God Bless you mummy..

  3. Cocka – Sembahyanglah sebelum anda ditekohkan.

    Angeline – God bless you!

    David – Heh, it still proves that Jesus lived. Usual lah, whenever there is any major religious festivals, things are bound to ‘reveal’. The other day, one scientist try to prove that there is no walk on the water but ice. To me, does it matter? Nope, God is Almighty, faith is within our heart and not easily swayed.

    foodcrazee – But psalms are beautiful too.

    ted – I am also still learning ‘cos this is just my 3rd year only.

    eternity – Thanks but… 🙂

    Amelia – Same to you.
