I had told my three year old the Palm Sunday story before last Sunday. We were talking about how the happy crowd was waving palm leaves and singing “Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” Boy was she ever excited to vigorously wave her tiny little palm leaf back and forth, whipping unsuspecting (and thankfully, understanding) parishoners.

Meanwhile in Rome
A friend is currently living in Rome and took these great photos of Palm Sunday celebrations there. Now, those are big palms.

By the way
Mass and last minute confessions tonight at St. Clements. Mass starts at 7:00 p.m. and confession is directly after. Nice way to get ready for Easter!
