Palm “Origami”

I read Lizette Larson’s interesting research on folding palms into crosses and other objects.

Is this a practice to be encouraged? When I received palm leaves from my first last-Sunday-in-Lent, I didn’t want them folded up into crosses. I left them on my desk in my bedroom. I noticed some people slid them behind their crucifixes.

When I first began to collect old palms for Ash Wednesday, I noticed some really intricate work. But people were still willing to donate them for burning.
