Palm Sunday Greeting from Fr. Luka

Spraznikom! I greet you with great joy upon this Feast! For today, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, enters Jerusalem greeted by the faithful, of which the children are first. Let us begin Holy Week with a pure heart, without fear, as they did when they greeted our Lord and Savior waving palm branches and singing, "Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna, in the Highest!"  To read Fr. Luka's Palm Sunday message, go to update page .
