Today is Palm Sunday, marking Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem on a donkey, where He was greeted by palm branches. This was the Sunday before His passion and marks the beginning of Holy Week.

Prayer of the Day
Everlasting God, in your endless love for the human race you sent our Lord Jesus Christ to take on our nature and to suffer death on the cross. In your mercy enable us to share in his obedience to your will and in the glorious victory of his resurrection, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
