“They took branches of palm and went out to receive him, shouting: ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who is coming in the name of the Lord, the king of Israel.’” John, 12:13. The palm is a symbol of peace and on this Palm Sunday we pray for the millions of people around the world who are affected by conflict and have had to flee with their families to face an uncertain future. Trócaire is working in many areas of conflict to ensure people have a chance of a better future. Find out more about the Lenten campaign at
