Palm Sunday

Feast of Blessed Ludovico Pavoni

Today is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. I think this is one of my children's favorite Masses because they get a palm. (And maybe one the mothers like the least - only because we are constantly trying to get our dear children to leave the palms alone during Mass, and not wave them in the air at Father.) It puzzled me why this long skinny leaf would entrance them so. Then it occurred to me, children have an innate sense of what is good. Palms are sacramentals. I think they realised this before they were taught this. Perhaps this year we will actually weave them.
