Focus on the Sunday Gospel with Our Weekly Liturgy Lesson for Palm Sunday.
Use this Weekly Liturgy Lesson for Palm Sunday to help children understand the meaning behind the celebration of Palm Sunday. This event also teaches us that God wants us to be humble. To add more meaning to this unit study, lesson materials will also focus on some of the events of Holy Week. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Mark 11:1-10.
Palm Sunday begins Holy Week as it focuses on Christ's final entry into Jerusalem. Jesus did this to show us His humility and to fulfill the Old Testament prophecy that revealed that He was the Messiah. Even though the crowd greeted Jesus with joyful shouts and people waved palm branches at Him in Jerusalem, His appeal it was shortlived. A few days later, many of these same people yelled for Christ to be crucified and killed on Good Friday.
