Collegio's Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday and we get through a reading today that recalls the Passion of Christ.

We, at the Collegio had a cool and pleasant morning to enter into the Holy Week with a short procession with palms... er.. olive... branches in our hands as we celebrate the first part with the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. This is my first Palm Sunday, celebrating the occasion in the Collegio. Last year I was at St Peter's Square with the rest of the people (and other pilgrims) joining in the Mass with the Holy Father.

The occasion this morning wasn't as grand and awesome as that at St Peter's, but it was still a good and solemn celebration where I had the opportunity to be with my brother priests as a community of sorts. The sisters who looks after our meals and laundry were also present in their brown habit of the Carmelites.

For the rest of the day, I am still in the early part of our Easter holidays here (2 weeks) and welcome the R&R that is ahead to 'recuperate' awhile...
