Friends of the Rosary,

In the Holy Land, Christians participated in a stunning procession from Bethphage to Jerusalem this Palm Sunday, Catholic News Agency reported.

The route followed the same path that Jesus took when He entered Jerusalem and was acclaimed by the crowd holding palms and olive branches.

About 3,000 faithful ascended the Mount of Olives, passed by Gethsemane, where Jesus experienced the most painful hours of his passion. Due to the ongoing war, there were fewer pilgrims than usual.

Those present responded with closeness in prayer, praise to the Lord, and a message of joy — the joy of being Christians.

“We have many problems, but we are truly happy that Jesus is our Lord. He is our joy and our strength,” said the Latin patriarch of Jerusalem, Cardinal Pierbattista Pizzaballa, who led the procession.

“Let us renew our commitment to follow Jesus and let us not be afraid! Jesus on the cross is the victory over the world, not the victory of arms, but that of love.”

The procession was preceded by the solemn Palm Sunday liturgy at the Holy Sepulcher, presided over by Pizzaballa.

The faithful waved palm branches and chanted “Hosanna,” circling the edicule of the Holy Sepulcher —the small shrine that houses the tomb of Jesus Christ—three times to symbolize the three days Jesus spent in the tomb. 

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
