Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Processions are an intimate part of our Catholic liturgical and spiritual life that date back to our Jewish roots. Our processions are a type of pilgrimage first undertaken by our Jews brethren to represent important historical events and always start somewhere and go somewhere; they are movement – both physical and spiritual. They remind us that our Christian life is a constant movement toward God and our eternal home. We are after all a pilgrim people.
Today is Passion (Palm) Sunday; the beginning of Holy Week and the most Holy season of the Church; a season offering several opportunities for all of us to join in procession. We begin with the procession of palms. The Roman Missal calls for a procession or solemn entrance before Mass on Passion Sunday. The procession with palms is the first of several processions during Holy Week. It leads us to the proclamation of the Passion of the Lord and takes us from joyful acclamation to sober reflection.
