Enter Holy Week 2012 with Hosanna Sunday (Palm Sunday)

Today the entire world is celebrating the Hosanna Sunday. 'Hosanna Sunday' is otherwise called as 'Palm Sunday' which commemorates the triumphant entry of the Lord Jesus Christ in to the City of Jerusalem.

When the 'time for the Son of Man had come to be glorified, he sat on the colt of a donkey and were led by the multitude to the Temple City, Jerusalem. The people who went before and after the Lord were in great joy and led the Lord in a procession carrying palm leaves, shouting 'Hosanna to the Son of David, Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord, Hosanna...! Many spread their clothes on the road, some spread the leaves of trees.

What does the word 'Hosanna really mean...? Many people think that the meaning of the word is 'Glory to God' or Victory to the Son of God. But according to Bible pundits, Hosanna means ' Please Save us now God' or 'Redeem us now God'. It is mentioned in Psalm 118:25. As it is a prayer of the Israelite meant only to the Almighty God, the priests and the Pharisees very angry and asked the Lord to stop the people crying 'Hosanna'...! They knew that those people who were shouting Hosanna were calling Lord Jesus Lord, Son of God and Jehovah...!

With the arrival of Hosanna, the Christian devotees world-wide are entering the Holy Week. The most important and Holiest Week in the Christian Liturgical calender. Those who want to cleanse their lives can utilize this week by seeking the Holy Sacrament of Confession...!

Let us all prepare our souls well and await in vigil for the Resurrection of the Savior of the world, the Easter 2012...!
