True to my promise, the posting has been light, but I DID take pictures. We decorated the church with palms yesterday evening before vespers and blessed them at the end. This morning we processed around the church with our palms at the end of liturgy. I’m not going to write out a blow-by-blow account…you can look at the pictures instead.
By raising Lazarus from the dead before thy passion
Thou hast confirmed the universal resurrection O Christ God.
Like the children with the palms of victory
We cry out to thee O vanquisher of death:
Hosanna in the highest!
Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord!
