Our Pilgrimage for
the Year of Faith to:
|Blessing Of Saint Filomena Statue & Mass|
|Palm’s Sunday Gifts: The Symbols
Of saint Philomena
Palm: palm is a symbol of victory, became a symbol of the victory of the faithful over the enemies of the soul. And Also commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.
Bread and Wine : Represent the night before Jesus died, HE instructed his followers to remember him by eating bread and drinking wine together. In the celebration of the Eucharist, the glorified Christ becomes present under the appearances of bread and wine . This is the great mystery of our faith
Candles: Candles symbolise enlightenment, encouragement, religious clarity and reassurance. No matter how thick the darkness, candle wipes out the darkness and shows us how love can brighten our life. Candles are also used to give a sense of direction to lost souls.
The Cross: the cross. It represents the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ for the redemption of the world and the redeeming benefits of his Passion and death.
The Crown : crown of thorns was woven of thorn branches and placed on Jesus Christ during the events leading up to the his crucifixion. It was one of the instruments of the Passion, employed by Jesus' captors both to cause him pain and to mock his claim of authority
The Linen- : A spotless towel is a symbol of purity, symbol of the Passion
Rocks: Rocks are a symbol of the Lord. This meaning is derived from the story of Moses, who smote the rock from which a : spring burst forth to refresh his people. Christ is often referred to as a rock from which flow the pure rivers of the Gospel. St. Peter, too, is referred to as the Rock, the cornerstone of the Church, because of Christ's statement: ' that thou art Peter, and upon this Rock I will build My Church.
