A worn jrow O·r MírtyIrq Tc«w
Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion, the first
Sunday of Holy Week within the Lenten
Season, commemorates Jesus' triumphal entry
into Jerusalem preceding his passion. As he
entered, the people of Jerusalem recognized
Jesus as their king, saying "Hosanna to the Son
of David; Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"

Traditionally in the Western Church the Palm Sunday service
begins with the "blessing of the palms," where the palms used in
the procession that follows are blessed. It is during this time that
the story of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem is read. Then a
procession into the church building follows. If there cannot be a
procession from the outside of the church, a solemn entrance,
taking place entirely within the church, may be done. The hymns
and psalmody are related to Christ's office as King.

Various customs have developed to celebrate Palm Sunday. In the
Slavic countries, the faithful walked through their buildings and
fields with the blessed palms, praying and singing ancient hymns.
They then laid palm pieces on each plot of ground, in every barn,
building, and stable, as a petition was made for protection from
weather and disease, and for a blessing upon the produce and
property.

May you all have a Blessed Holy week and Triduum!
