2015 Palm Sunday Celebration in San Pablo City, Laguna


The start of the Holy Week was on a festive note as the palm leaves served to welcome this high holiday for Roman Catholics and other related Christian denominations. These leaves are blessed during key times on Palm Sunday in commemoration of the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem, just a few days before his Crucifixion. As is tradition, these same leaves shall be burned and shall be used for the Ash Wednesday of next year. This may have its own religious symbolism or meaning but somehow it will remind you of the cycle related to man: from dust he came, to dust he’ll come back.
