Today is Palm Sunday, the feast that commemorates Jesus' triumphal ride into Jerusalem in the days before His Passion.
"The huge crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while some began to cut branches from the trees and lay them along his path. The groups preceding him as well as those following him kept crying out: 'Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!' "(Matt. 21: 8-9)
