Holy Week is finally upon us! A friend and I are always discussing the grandiose processions we'd like to have. I'm a lover of the organ accompaniament and was teasing her that she should get a portable organ for our processions. Sure enough she sent me some pictures that gave me the giggles until she pointed out the YouTube of the Palm Sunday Procession in the Vatican that went along with it. It is 5 minutes of the Pueri Hebraeorum and the grand procession. Absolutely beautiful. It is a good reminder that amidst all the muck in this world today, there is still alot of the good and the beautiful.
Have a beautiful and blessed Holy Week and may God bless you with the grace to make a good confession! Be free of all sin for Easter, it is the greatest gift you can do for yourself... and... more importantly.... the greatest gift you can do to show your love for God. Remember, there is nothing new under the sun. If you have committed the worst sin ever.... so has someone else (don't think you are so very creative).... all you have to do is say it to a priest under the perfect confidentiality of the confessional. *That's it* Then "go and sin no more".
The Hebrew children bearing olive branches, went forth to meet the Lord, crying out, and saying, Hosanna in the highest.
The Hebrew children spread their garments in the way, and cried out, saying: Hosanna to the Son of God: blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord.
