On a sad note in the midst of Corona Virus, called COVID-19 by the World Health Organization, WHO, the Christians worldwide have worn their confidence to celebrate 2020 Palm Sunday.
However, Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter, on which Christ’s entry into Jerusalem is celebrated in many Christian churches by processions in which branches of palms are carried.
Regardless of the lockdown due to COVID-19 virus, many have taken to their social media handles to embrace and celebrate reasons behind Palm Sunday.
“As we celebrate this Palm Sunday and begin the Holy Week, let’s all put our country in prayer as we continue to fight against the spread of #COVID19. HAPPY PALM SUNDAY”, @UAPOldMutualNg.
“#Sunday, #April 5, #Palm Sunday 2020, HAPPY PALM SUNDAY!!!! Loving God, We praise you in a special way today as we celebrate Palm Sunday. Be with us as we begin our journey through Holy Week that we may draw”, @YaRa_Rannu.
@Raffytima, “Happy Palm Sunday. Hold on, have faith”.
“Happy Palm Sunday to you all as we celebrate the Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem”, @Julyovet.
“Happy Palm Sunday y’all. Remember to thank God for the gift of life #PalmSunday”, @Derrobates.
Obviously and irrespective of the lockdown, churches have announced to hold their Sunday plus Palm Services online on their social media pages and website as they have been doing since lockdown.
