Palm Sunday

Blessed Palm/Passion Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week!

We pray in the Liturgy of the Hours for Lauds (morning prayer) the antiphon and intercessions below. As you pray this with us, let us all unite in welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem, and into our very lives this week. And let us not leave Him alone as He bears our sufferings and the sins of the whole world.

May we be counted among the faithful, with the angels and with the children. Triumphant over death, we sing with them, ‘Hosanna in the highest.’

Let us adore Christ the Lord. When he entered Jerusalem, the crowds proclaimed him Messiah and king.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna to you, the Son of David, the king of ages;
  hosanna to you in your triumph over death and hell.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
You went up to Jerusalem to endure the passion and enter into glory;
  lead your Church into the paschal feast of eternal life.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
You made your cross the tree of life;
  share your victory with all the baptized.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
You came to save sinners;
  bring into your kingdom all who believe, hope and love.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
