Palm Sunday – 16 March 2008
Today is Palm Sunday for Western Christian churches which use the
Gregorian calendar to calculate the date of Easter. Because the
Eastern Orthodox Christian churches use the Julian calendar, which was
in use during the First Ecumenical Council of Nicaea in 325 AD,
they’ll be celebrating Palm Sunday on 20 April this year. Last year
was one of those times when the celebration of Easter coincided in
both churches; but it doesn’t occur very often.
Perhaps we should all try to follow Jesus’ teachings concerning
compassion instead of devoting so much time and energy to doctrinal
issues. How we treat those described as “least among you” in the Bible
is more important to God. Until “Christian” churches stop supporting and
start speaking out about the diabolical cruelty of the animal
agriculture industries, they are far from living up to the basic ideals
and standards of Jesus.
Please read my 5 April 2006 Blog “Holiday Nightmares” that was
written two years ago:
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
