🎶”Hosanna to the Son of David, the King of Israel. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!” 🎶
We were able to obtain large palms, having been gifted from the place where we were on retreat. We decorated the area where we were having the Celebration of the Eucharist. The kids helped us prepare the area for the solemn procession into our Jerusalem.
The music was prepared, the palms ready for blessing, and the Word of God invited us to process with our palms high. Sr. Inga gave a beautiful introduction for entering this Holy Week and journeying with Jesus from death to life. Sr. Marilyn cantored the psalm, “Bondye mwen, Bondye mwen, poukisa ou abandone mwen?” (“My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”)
The Gospel of the passion was proclaimed in parts and everyone stood and listened in awe.
