Semana Santa: Domingo de Ramos

Lift up your palms
Lift up your voices


Today's Palm Sunday service in the Methodist Church was full of songs and flowers. But I wanted palms, so afterwards I skipped across the Plaza to the San Jose's RC church and stood in the crowds waving branches while the priest blessed with words and water the palms and the people. And we remembered how quickly the welcome turned to rejection.

There are pictures of Palm Sunday celebrations around the world on the BBC at:
