Palm Sunday is the final Sunday of Lent, the beginning of Holy Week, and commemorates the triumphant arrival of Christ in Jerusalem, days before he was crucified.

Palm Sunday is known as such because the faithful will often receive palm fronds which they use to participate in the reenactment of Christ's arrival in Jerusalem.

Stations Of The Cross In Benque

In the spirit of Easter - we leave you with images of the very rich religious celebration on Good Friday in Benque Viejo. It's called the Stations of the Cross and provides a vivid re-enactment of the crucifixion of Christ and other cornerstones of the Catholic observance of Easter. We have that tonight courtesy of NICH.
