Palm Sunday

Yesterday was Palm Sunday. A day of reflection ahead of this weekends celebrations. The kids were involved in an outdoor re-enactment of the stations of the cross in the grounds of our church. It was scorching hot and the sun blazed down on us through the gum trees.

There was time for some light relief in the shade between practises. I still cant quite shake the image of Rhiannon and a young nun who befriended her playing Nintendo DS together and the nun giggling as she made the puppy on the screen run around and around in circles! Bizarre.

It was hard on the little ones dressed in black in the midday heat practising for the silent drama they did but they did an incredible job and were wonderful.

It certainly was a Palm Sunday with a difference. We have a big week ahead of us in our Church and are looking forward to the long weekend celebrations of Easter, resurrection and family time together.

  1. My favorite thing about nuns... when they let loose and have fun! I love how childlike they can become when they are being light hearted and silly!!! Have a great week!
