9/3/08 – Passion Sunday

“On Passion Sunday (Palm Sunday) the Church enters upon the mystery of its crucified, buried, and risen Lord, who, by his entrance into Jersualem, gave a glimpse of his own majesty.  Christians carry branches as a sign of the royal triumph that Christ won by his acceptance of the cross.  Since Saint Paul says: ‘Provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him,’ the link between these two aspects of the paschal mystery should stand out clearly in the liturgical celebration… of Palm Sunday.”

(Ceremonial of Bishops, 263)

Passion (Palm) Sunday is next Sunday, 9 April.  As usual, the 9:00 a.m. Mass will commence with a procession, starting in the school playground near the parish hall.  All other Masses will commence with a solemn entrance beginning in the parish centre.  Processions have long marked solemn celebrations in our Church; please take this opportunity to participate in a solemn and prayerful way through word, movement and song.
