From Barabbas to Seamless Garments: Explaining Palm Sunday to Children

Palm Sunday Liturgy was long but fruitful (and funny due to my kids’ antics) Mass.

I have had to learn how to boil down the truths of our faith in simple and digestible ways for my kids to understand.

They help me grow as a teacher of our Catholic faith (it helps that I have a Master’s Degree in Theology 🙂).

Here’s a glimpse into the theology and (face)palming I experienced today as detailed via a Tweet-thread. Enjoy!

The context for this bit-o-shenanigans: last year my youngest daughter screamed NOOOO at the exact moment the narrator mentioned Malchus’ ear getting chopped off.
Honestly, an excellent question from my daughter. Showed she was paying attention. 🙏🙂
A logical question for Palm Sunday. 🌴
Good question but a face-palm on the timing. 🤦
Another 🤦. But after further reflection it is good she wanted to display reverence. 🙂🙏

Share your Palm Sunday experience with me in the comments section.

Hope you have a blessed Holy Week! 🙏

Thank you for sharing!
