Arisen! Happy Easter to You!

I hope you have a blessed Easter! Here is Jesus with his the Resurrection banner looking a lot like he arose somewhere in Italy.

Cold Palm Sunday this Year

Easter is early this year, and Holy Week begins with a very cold Palm Sunday.The only signs of Spring to be seen are a few bulbs pushing through the soil to the height of about 3 inches. There is a chance of snow. The picture above, from the European tradition shows that a cold Palm Sunday isn't anything new. Almost everyone is wearing cloaks and hats. We are lucky that the sun has been shining in Wilmette. In Europe, Kiev has received 20" of snow, and the UK is feeling the effects of snow and bad weather.
