Jenny (formerlyphread.com) and I are in Rome and Florence the week leading up to Easter, and had a great opportunity to attend Palm Sunday Mass with the Pope at the courtyard of St. Peter’s Basilica!
Watch the video below to see all the festivities that occur during Palm Sunday mass!
I was surprised how many similarities there are between their mass and our sacrament. My appreciation for other faith traditions and how they worship was definitely heightened (and it also made me very appreciative of our beliefs and the covenants I have made with others and my Heavenly Father). There are good people everywhere who want to serve the #PrinceOfPeace and others in all nations and all religions!
How are you preparing for Easter this season? Have you been to mormon.org to see the latest video about our Savior? Please comment below.
Wondering what Latter-day Saint President Russell M. Nelson has to say about Palm Sunday and Easter?
President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints shares a story illustrating how to find peace in troubling times and circumstances. As the world seeks relief from the stains of a disrupted year, President Nelson reminds us there is only one way to find the solemnity and tranquility of lasting peace—the enduring peace that passes all understanding. That surpassing peace is found in Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.
I love the messages in these mosaics at St. Peter’s Basilica. Especially the first. We traditionally think of Christ alone in the garden–and that is very true. But he was strengthened, at times, by heavenly help. We, too, have heavenly helpers by our sides during many of the things we face in life. Look up. #PrinceOfPeace #PalmSunday #Easter
