For your palm this year we are inviting you to take a small branch from a tree or bush in your home garden.
PRAYER for Blessing Of Palms in The Home
As we gather as a family, since the beginning of Lent until now we have prepared our hearts by penance and charitable works.
Today we gather to herald with the whole Church the beginning of the celebration of our Lord’s Paschal Mystery, that is to say, of his Passion and Resurrection.
For it was to accomplish this mystery that he entered his own town city of Jerusalem.
Therefore, with all faith and devotion, let us commemorate the Lord’s entry into the city for our salvation, following in his footsteps, so that, being made, by his grace, partakers of the Cross, we may have a share also in the Resurrection and in his life.
Let us pray.
Increase the faith of those who place their hope in you, O God, and bless these branches.
Graciously hear the prayers of those who call on you, that we, who today hold high these branches to hail Christ in his triumph, may bear fruit for you by good works accomplished in him.
Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
