Palm Sunday is a celebration celebrated by Catholics in commemoration of Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem. This happened only a few days before His death. This event symbolises the joy that the people heard during Jesus' entry into Jerusalem.
However, some people usually throw away the palm leaves after the mass. You should never throw these leaves away. Do you know what to do with them?
The palm leaves have been blessed by the priest so they are all therefore holy. They are not just leaves plucked from palm trees and distributed to the believers. These leaves are held up to the next year when they are burned to make the ash for the ash Wednesday. Believers should carry these palm leaves to their houses, keep them in a safe place and bring them back on a proposed date for burning.
Carrying these leaves to your home may seem difficult, especially for men. All you need to do is find somewhere to carry them. These are blessings you are taking to your home. Please note that these are not mere palm leaves, they are blessed palm leaves.
