In Christianity, the celebration of Eastertide includes Easter eggs symbolizing the empty tomb of Jesus: though an egg appears to be like the stone of a tomb, a bird hatches from it with life; similarly, the Easter egg, for Christians, is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave, and that those who believe will also experience eternal life (source: Wikipedia).
We went to church today, deciding the last minute since we woke up late (as usual). It's Palm Sunday and we agreed to go to a church in the vicinity, St. Pius V in Pasadena. We arrived in a noon mass (just in time) but (yup, there's a but)... the mass was in Spanish (not our first though), and we can't understand a thing. there's nothing much we could do so, we just made the best of it and that's to pray.
Anyway, more than the physical representations, knowing the essence of Palm Sunday should be in utmost importance. Our Lord teaches us that we should peacefully settle any disputes or disagreements. War should never be an option. And with the present happenings around the world, I pray that it would be realized that there are more pros than cons if we choose peace over war. For the children's sake. Yahweh bless.
