‘... Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord’
Ethan Buckner, 11, of Frederick County holds a palm frond as he awaits the start of the “Blessing of the Palms” ecumenical Palm Sunday service on the Loudoun Street Mall. Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. According to the Gospels, Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem, and the celebrating people there laid down their cloaks in front of him, and also laid down small branches of trees. The people sang part of Psalm 118:25-26: “... Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” (Photo by Jeff Taylor/The Winchester Star)
