Palm Sunday: Sunday of the Passion

Commemorating both Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem and his passion, this feast begins Holy Week and points us toward ​the events of ​Good Friday​ and Easter. All of these themes can be found in the ​morning service of Lauds, which includes antiphons of praise, hymns of the passion, and text​s​ that point​ ​to our redemption through Christ’s ​death and resurrection. The liturgy of Holy Eucharist for ​this day begins with a “triumphant” procession​ accompanied by hymns of Hosannas, and then moves to a quieter meditation on Christ’s suffering​, concluding with solemn reverence as Holy Week begins.
