Palm Sunday – 5 April 2009
Today is Palm Sunday for Western Christian churches which use the
Gregorian calendar to calculate the date of Easter. The Gregorian
calendar was proclaimed in 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII as a reform of
the Julian calendar. 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 April 12th this year.
This is partly why the dates for these holidays rarely coincide, as
they did in 2007.
However, the dates are really not anywhere as important as our
allowing Jesus Christ to make a triumphal entry into our hearts and
souls, so that we live as the loving, compassionate, and peacemaking
children of God that He calls us to be.

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.
