The Palm Sunday liturgy is full of contrasts: from the triumphal entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem to the scene of his crucifixion; from the Hosanna’s shouted in his honour to the cry of Crucify him from the crowds.

The liturgy attempts to reflect this: a procession with palms and the gospel telling us of the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem flows into readings telling us of a suffering servant of God and the account of Jesus’ passion.

And so Holy Week’s dramatic start points the way to… the Easter Triduum!
