Palm Sunday 2015 with the Colorado Traveling Ducks

Today is Palm Sunday.  This day commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem while riding a donkey.

Eastern tradition says a king riding on a donkey comes in peace and a king riding on a horse comes for war.  Jesus riding a donkey symbolized his coming in peace.

Today is the beginning of Holy Week.
