Palm Sunday always falls on the Sunday before Easter Sunday. The feast commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem an event mentioned by all four Canonical Gospels namely Mark 11:1-11, Matthew 21:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, and John 12:12-19. Palm Sunday is marked by the distribution of palm leaves (often tied into crosses) to the assembled worshipers.
Palm Sunday, often referred to as “Passion Sunday”, marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.
The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him by waving palm branches and covering his path with palm branches. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross.
