G is for the Great Entrance into Jerusalem

Today is April 8th.  The majority of Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ today.  If you are one of them, I wish you a blessed and spiritually fulfilling celebration as you shout He is Risen!

For Orthodox Christians around the world, today is our Palm Sunday.  It is the feast of the Great Entrance of Christ riding on a donkey into Jerusalem.  It is also known as the Triumphal Entry.

This morning when we enter into the building we’ll be greeted with the bright gold cloths and green vestments and lots of greenery.  It will be crowded but it will be a joyful celebration!

  1. I'm curious about the difference in dates. I could look just look it up, I suppose. But since you blogged about it, would you mind explaining it to me further?
