Palm Sunday

Add another layer of meaning to your Easter observance. Go and read this blog post. Here's a snippet to whet your appetite.
Holy Week: Palm Sunday: "Less well-known is the historical fact that a Roman imperial procession was also entering Jerusalem for Passover from the other side of the city. It happened every year: the Roman governor of Judea, whose residence was in Caesarea on the coast, rode up to Jerusalem in order to be present in the city in case there were riots at Passover, the most politically volatile of the annual Jewish festivals. With him came soldiers and cavalry to reinforce the imperial garrison in Jerusalem."
Two processions into the same city at the same time, but in opposite direction and in opposite appearance. Which will you choose?
