Palm Sunday: palm or olive branches?
One of my contributors just wrote in an email about lunch for the family on Palm Sunday and it was the perfect time since OLIVE TREES were being pruned at this time of the year.................
This made me stop and think.
I dont remember receiving olive branches after mass on Palm Sunday EXCEPT for the year I lived in Sorrento Italy. Perhaps this is because in the USA we may have more palm trees than olive trees?
Who remembers recieving an olive branch on Palm Sunday????
