PS 28: Passion Sunday

Jesus arms outstretchedRemember, you can check the full document Paschale Solemnitatis on this site, among many on the internet. Sections 28 through 34 treat Passion Sunday, and we’ll consider it for the next several days. Your comments, of course, are always welcome.

Section 28 gives the homilist a topic:

28. Holy Week begins on “Passion (or Palm) Sunday” which joins the foretelling of Christ’s regal triumph and the proclamation of the Passion. The connection between both aspects of the paschal mystery should be shown and explained in the celebration and catechesis of this day. (Cf. Ceremonial of Bishops, 263)

It is important to recall that Passion Sunday does not recall a Jerusalem party celebrated for Jesus. The Church interprets the entry into the Holy City as that “foretelling” of the triumph of the Lord over death, and also the bridegroom’s pilgrimage to the waiting bride.
