NIMP* but my wife reports this around the time she became a Catholic.
One year they couldn’t find a donkey, so the pastor, in full liturgical garb, rode to the church entrance on a horse. Another year, they did find the appropriate animal, so he rode into the nave on an ass.
So they say.
Anybody ever used live animals for today’s observance? If you decline to be so literal, feel free to voice your opinion. I tend to doubt that riding presiders would reenact the thorns, nails, stripping, etc..
Safe to say.
