Liturgical notes

This Sunday the people of God gather with branches after the opening chant to sign themselves with the sign of the cross and exchange the usual greeting. Then we hear:

With all faith and devotion, let us commemorate the Lord’s entry into the city for our salvation, following in his footsteps, so that, being made by his grace partakers of the Cross, we may have a share also in his Resurrection and in his life.

Palm Sunday Procession, §5

Blessed by water and the proclamation of the Gospel, the community move in song into the body of the church for the celebration of word and sacrament. The proclamation of the Gospel will be without candles, incense, greetings or signing. We the people of the paschal mystery then move to Communion in that very sacrifice.

‘Through the Passion of your Only Begotten Son, O Lord, may our reconciliation with you be near at hand, so that, though we do not merit it by our own deeds, yet by this sacrifice made once for all, we may feel already the effects of your mercy.’

—prayer over the offerings
