Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord A20
This Palm Sunday is a unique celebration: no blessing of palms to be given out, no parts to be spoken during the reading of The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew, no choir or singing, and for most of us, no reception of the Eucharist. How very odd! And further, the rest of Holy Week including Tenebrae and the Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday Vigil of Easter) will likewise be celebrated (?) in a like manner. I will surely miss you, your presence, your enthusiasm, your smiling faces (except on Good Friday), and your joy on Easter Sunday.
