What do Christians Celebrate on Palm Sunday?
On Palm Sunday Christians celebrate the Triumphal Entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, one week before his execution by crucifixion. For many Christian churches, Palm Sunday, often referred to as "Passion Sunday," marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.
The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him with waving palm branches, and by covering his path with palm branches. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross.
The biblical account of Palm Sunday can be found in Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-44; and John 12:12-19.

And what a beautiful service it was today. To have my palm in my hand, the priest tossing out holy water on to the palms in our hands and I loved when the holy water landed on much I love about being Catholic.
The gospel today was the passion and what passion I have for Christ in my life.
Since you blogged about Palm Sunday I just had to stop and comment.
Many blessings!
