May This Day Find You at Peace and Leave You with Hope

“May this day find you at peace and leave you with hope” is a traditional Drayan blessing (from a Star Trek Voyager episode).

This could as well be a blessing for Palm Sunday.

In the Philippines, young coconut leaves are woven into fronds.

People wave them during the mass for the Palm Sunday blessing.

Waving the fronds (locally called “palaspas”) welcomes the start of the Holy Week — for many in the Philippines, a time for healing the soul, finding peace and renewal through hope.
