With the celebration of Palm Sunday, or Passion Sunday, we begin Holy Week in the Church. On this day we remember the solemn entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The faithful gather in front of the Church, where the bkessing of the palms take place. During the liturgy the Passion of Our Lord is read. Palm Sunday is the last Sunday of Lent and announces the redemptive events that will take place at Golgotha. It therefore introduces us to the direct experience of the Paschal mysteries.
