Hosanna!  Crucify Him!

Palm Sunday

When he entered Jerusalem, they hailed him with palms.  A few days later they nailed him to a cross.  We read about both events on a Sunday with two names but featuring the same Lord and the same fickle crowd.  A day of both joy and sorrow--

Come to The Crossroads Initiative and deepen your appreciation of The Drama of Palm Sunday!  This article is available in Spanish, visit here.

Once you finish that, visit another page on our site for some insight into the matter from an Early Church Father!

Don't Let Holy Week Pass You By!

Holy Week

Lent is winding down and we are about to enter Holy Week. Check out the incredible Holy Week resources we've put together for you, many available for easy free downloading and printing to share with friends & family over Easter.  Why not print out your favorite and send it with your Easter cards?!

Speaking of Easter – We are adding more and more incredible articles that are perfect for getting the most out of the upcoming Easter Season! Including a section from Pope Francis!

Better Easter Baskets!

To celebrate the birth of Christ, everybody gives Christmas gifts, and for the resurrection of our Lord, there are always Easter baskets. But this year, how about giving something Christ-centered to put in the basket along with chocolate eggs and jelly beans?

The Friendly Defender Flash Cards and Great Adventure Packs are awesome for kids, the Scriptural Rosary book with Luminous Mysteries small, affordable, but priceless in its power to bring the rosary alive, then there is Exploring the Catholic Church for RCIA grads, and I Believe, an audio or video series to make the Easter Season at least as spiritual powerful as Lent.

We also have a HUGE reduction on ALL Great Adventure Materials! These studies are a phenomenal way to delve deeper into your faith this Easter Season! And don’t forget to check out these other incredible resources below -
