Lent Ends ... Holy Week 2008 Begins!

Yesterday, the Catholic Church celebrates two feasts -- Palm Sunday with Jesus's triumphant entry into Jerusalem ... and Passion Sunday with the reading of one of the Passion stories that covers Jesus's betrayal by Judas, his arrest and torture and his walk on Calvary.

This begins what we call "Holy Week" ... the path to Easter Sunday, the highest holy day of the year!

BTW, the icon above was first linked on Leonie's Living Without School blog ... it comes from a Maronite heritage site of icons. Isn't it lovely?
