PALM SUNDAY AT PUSHPASHRAMA
The King of Glory comes, the nation rejoices! Open the gates
before Him lift up your voices!
Jubilant was the welcome of the King Jesus who would soon be enthroned
on His throne of cross. Commemorating the procession of the Lord to
Jerusalem, we initiated the Holy Week by celebrating the Palm Sunday.
The palms were blessed at 8:00 am in Dhyanavana and the procession was
set forth from the same to our shrine at Pushpashrama. The Holy mass was
celebrated by Fr. Joachim Rodrigues along with six con-celebrants. The
homily on the suffering of Christ and the application of the same in our
lives was preached by Fr. Pradeep. The spirit of this celebration was
enhanced by the melodious choir of our brothers. Thus the mass came to
an end at 9: 20 am, after which people returned to their homes with
palms shaped into crosses and hearts readied for the reception of the
paschal mystery of Christ!
