Here we are... Holy Week! I used the new camera to capture the fresh tulips Number Seven just brought in, and the iron crucifix given to us as a wedding gift by my oldest brother Pedro and his wife Teresa 25 years ago. Lord, come into our homes and hearts.
Pope Benedict called Palm Sunday the Doorway to Holy Week yesterday in his sermon in Rome. The Bishop's Mass at the cathedral was gorgeous, with the Gospel of the Passion chanted, beautifully, by several priests. The mass started outside with the blessing of the palms, the choir singing the traditional Hosana Filio David. A feast for the senses and the heart. (I confess my mother's eyes were on Number Four, pontifical server extraordinaire, the middle one.)
