This is how I #PalmSunday
My grandfather, Papapa, taught me how to make these little crosses out of palms when I was around 8 or 9 years old. Every Palm Sunday mass, I enter an almost meditative state of mind as I make as many of these little crosses as I can, then I hand them off to loved ones I select for them.
Religion can be a lot of things to a lot people, but for me, it has always been at the root of our #familytraditions, and therefore will always be a part of my life.
Today at mass, I was also reminded that faith based organizations (like the #Catholic Church) have also been major architects of #community building since their inception. Walk into any mass and you see many intergenerational relationships- a key piece of a thriving society which seems to be more and more rare these days.
Happy start of #HolyWeek, everyone!
