DIY Palm Crosses

As we celebrate Palm Sunday, let us not despair that we cannot receive our usual palm crosses from the Church. Let us instead remember that wherever "two or more gather in my name" is the living Church, and that we can each celebrate the beauty of this day with palm crosses made at home. The following link is just one of many simple tutorials available. If palm fronds prove too difficult to come by, simply do as one of our parishioners did and use iris leaves, cut lengthwise into thirds, instead.
