After raising His friend Lazarus from the dead the day before, Jesus entered Jerusalem triumphantly and symbolically. His message was clear -no grave can hold anyone who accepts the Savior in their heart. All who believe can have the gift of everlasting life. People honored and praised Jesus by laying palm branches in his path. The fresh living palms themselves being the symbol of life Christ bestows upon all. On this day, we receive and worship Christ in this same manner, acknowledging Him as our King and Lord. We hold the pussywillows and palms in our hands during the Divine Liturgy when the Church celebrates both the presence and the coming of the Lord in the mystery of the Eucharist.
