Palm Sunday in Jerusalem

These beautiful ladies are in Jerusalem for Palm Sunday. I don't know if they are nuns or something, or just dressed formally for the holiday. The expressions on their faces are really calm and full of spirituality, aren't they?

This article in The Daily Star says that Palm Sunday is the start of Holy Week, which means that next Sunday will be Easter. This year the Orthodox Christians, the Catholics and the Protestants are all celebrating Easter on the same day, so this is a special week for all our Christian sisters and brothers in the world. (This doesn't always happen. Sometimes different groups celebrate different weeks because of the calenders they use.)

Jerusalem is so important to so many faiths! Let's pray for peace there, and in the world. (And hug a Christian for Holy Week! I'm going to hug my girlfriend's mother!)
