“The King of Glory comes, the nation rejoices. Open the gates before him lift up their voices.”

These Words were reverberated on March 25, 2018 in the entire Christendom as the Church prepared itself to step into the holiest week of Christianity initiated by The Palm Sunday. The Shrine of Infant Jesus also participated into this practice by organizing the mass at 8:00 AM. The blessing of the Palms and the Invitatory Rite were held at Dhyanavana, our neighboring house in the presence of a large group of faithful, lay and religious alike. All the faithful marched devoutly, commemorating the glorious event of the entry of Jesus to the city of Jerusalem. Soon after this, followed the holy Eucharistic celebration presided by Fr. Vinod Lobo which was concelebrated by the Community priests along with guest priests, Fr. Rovel D’Souza OCD and Fr. Gilbert Aranha. Fr Pradeep Pinto through his inspiring homily enabled the faithful to ponder on the passion of our Lord. The solemn mass was beautifully harmonized with the wonderful voices lent out by the Brothers of Pushpashrama. The Church was also packed to the full, yet extra chairs were brought in continuously to accommodate the people. The mass came to an end at 9:30 after which the people went to their houses thus to prepare themselves for the coming holy days of their faith.
