Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, one of the most significant moments of the Church year. As we prepare to walk with Jesus through Holy Week, we call to mind the countless men, women and children who even today carry heavy crosses. It is important to remember that an essential pillar of Lenten spirituality—almsgiving—allows us to help those who are most in need. When you generously share your abundance with our global family, you help make the world a kinder place. Families participating in Rice Bowl should return their collection boxes next week.
