“Of the weeks in the Church’s year Holy Week is truly singular for the fullness, majesty, and devotion of the ceremonies. From apostolic times special care had been taken to celebrate the central mysteries of our redemption, and in the course of time three days — Friday, Saturday, Sunday — came to be set apart for the liturgical memory of Christ crucified, Christ buried, Christ risen. A little later was added a fourth day, of solemn ritual remembrance of the institution of the most Holy Eucharist. A further addition was made on the previous Sunday, to celebrate the triumphant entry into His holy city of Christ our Lord, Messias and King.” - Roman Catholic Daily Missal (1962)
After praying along with our parish’s live stream of the Holy Mass for Palm Sunday, we were able to drive by and pick up Blessed Palms from a basket outside the doors to the church 🌿
