Palm Sunday 2008

Procession on Palm Sunday, 2008

Palm Sunday was both sober and joyous as the faithful at Holy Cross celebrated the triumphant entrance of the King of Kings into Jerusalem, but also anticipated the cries of "Crucify Him!" to come later in Holy Week. The weather, too, seemed in tune with the meaning of the day, with glorious sunshine during our procession with palms and branches, crying "Hosanna!" but turning to ominous dark clouds later as we were leaving the church beginning Holy Week.
