For more than 2000 years the Roman Catholic Church has had the crucifix—a figure of Jesus crucified on a cross---as the focal point on the altar for believers as we enter our basilicas, cathedrals, shrines, churches, or chapels.

The crucifix is situated near or on the altar, and Catholics “bless themselves” by making a sign of the cross with holy water and bending the knee at the foot of the cross in reverence to Christ.

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”
The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.” (NIV Matthew 21:8-11)

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week.
