Sunday 17 April 2011

Palm and Passion Sunday opens Holy Week, which ends Lent with Good Thursday, Good Friday, Good Saturday and the Easter Vigil. This week commemorates the last days of Christ (the Last Supper, his Passion, his death and Resurrection). These days are the highlight of the liturgical year and gather tens of thousands of faithful to Notre-Dame de Paris.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Six days before the Jewish Passover (which commemorates the departure of the Hebrews from Egypt after 400 years of slavery), Jesus returned to Jerusalem. The crowd covered the ground of Green Palms to cheer him on as he entered the city.

Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday and the Lord's Passion, which unites the triumph of Christ the King and the proclamation of his Passion.

It is in memory of this triumphal entrance to Jerusalem that the faithful carry branches (of boxwood, olive trees, laurel or palm trees...). These branches, once blessed, are held in the hands of the faithful who set out in procession: marching towards Easter of the people of God following Christ. During the celebration, the Passion of the Lord is read out, recounting all of Christ's sufferings from his arrest in the olive garden to his burial. This Passion is the mystery of Christ's Passover going towards death and offering his life out of love for the salvation of humanity. It is in Christ's Passion, inseparable from the Resurrection, that the Christian, through baptism, also makes the transition from death to life.

16:30 Sixth and last Lent Conference
« Famille et société : un jeu de miroir ? » par Monseigneur Pierre d’ORNELLAS, archevêque de Rennes
Les observateurs et les analystes avisés, comme les acteurs et les témoins de la vie familiale que nous sommes tous, sentent combien les faiblesses et les richesses de notre société reflètent celles de nos familles, et réciproquement. La famille, baromètre de la société, nous laisse aujourd’hui désorientés. Comment discerner et accompagner les missions de la petite cellule familiale, intimement imbriquées dans celles de la société ? Comment concourent-elles à éclairer les finalités et les chemins de la vie humaine ? Quelles paroles et quelles actions l’Eglise peut-elle offrir aux hommes et aux femmes de bonne volonté pour que soient tissés un lien familial et un lien social qui, ensemble, témoignent de la dignité et de la transcendance de la personne humaine, qu’elle soit adulte ou enfant ?
17h15 : Debate avec Monseigneur Pierre d’ORNELLAS
