On Sunday, April 9, we celebrated Christ's Entrance into Jerusalem, when people met Him as King, shouting, "Hosanna! Praise God!" only to change these shouts into screams of madness six days later with, "Crucify Him!" (You can read the sermon of this Sunday here).
At the end of the Liturgy we also had a Procession around the church, led by our children with willow branches, who like the children in Jerusalem some 2000 years ago, ran out to meet the Messiah with palm branches.
