Palm Sunday Mass at Vatican with Pope Francis

Palm Sunday in the Christian church marks the beginning of Holy Week. It celebrates Jesus' journey into Jerusalem to celebrate the feast of the Passover. Palm leaves were spread before him by the crowd as a sign of a triumphal return - and to save him from the dust of the road. At 9.30 am on the morning of Palm Sunday in Rome Pope Francis appears in St Peter's Square to celebrate mass and take part in one of the great Easter traditions in Rome - the solemn but very colorful procession of palms and the blessing of the faithful. Cardinals, Bishops and priests as well as the Pope and his closest clergy advisors all take part in a lengthy procession which winds through the Square to the altar in front of the Basilica, where mass is celebrated. The Pope's Palm Sunday sermon, delivered from the steps in front of St Peter's Basilica during the Palm Sunday mass, is traditionally known as the 'Angelus message'.

Stop At: Piazza San Pietro, 00120 Vatican City Italy

Palm Sunday in the Christian church marks the beginning of Holy Week (Holy Week - also known as Easter week). It celebrates Jesus' journey into Jerusalem to celebrate the feast of the Passover. Palm leaves were spread before him by the crowd as a sign of a triumphal return - and to save him from the dust of the road. At 9.30 a.m. on the morning of Palm Sunday in Rome Pope Francis appears in St Peter's Square to celebrate mass and take part in one of the great Easter traditions in Rome - the solemn but very colorful procession of palms and the blessing of the faithful. This is a long ceremony which you should expect to last about three hours. Cardinals, Bishops and priests as well as the Pope and his closest clergy advisors all take part in a lengthy procession which winds through the Square to the altar in front of the Basilica, where mass is celebrated. Because palms are not readily available in Italy they are often replaced in Easter traditions with branches from olive trees which symbolize both local olive culture and peace. At Easter in Rome you will see the Pope blessing both. The Pope's Palm Sunday sermon, delivered from the steps in front of St Peter's Basilica during the Palm Sunday mass, is traditionally known as the 'Angelus message'. Palm Sunday has been designated World Youth Day in the Christian calendar and the Pope's Palm Sunday sermon is therefore always a message to the young people of the world, often linking the hardships and trials faced by today's youth to those of young people in Jesus' time .
