REACHING OUT. A lay minister blesses palm fronds during a Palm Sunday Mass at the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes in San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan, on April 14, 2019.

Palm Sunday services recall the cries and gestures of triumph by onlookers when Jesus entered Jerusalem.

Palm Sunday, also known as Passion Sunday, is the first day of Holy Week - the last week of Lent which starts on Palm Sunday and ends on Easter Sunday.

This year, Palm Sunday falls on April 14, Good Friday falls on April 19 and Easter Sunday will be celebrated on April 21.

The pope said that it was important to resist the temptations of triumphalism and remain humble.

"Festive acclamations and brutal torture: the silence of Jesus throughout his Passion is profoundly impressive", Francis said in his homily.

Francis added that "one subtle form of triumphalism is spiritual worldliness, which represents the greatest danger, the most treacherous temptation threatening the church".

Anglican Church priest-in-charge for St Mary's Chitungwiza Canon Norman Nyawo said the event was crucial as it inspires Christians to have the same character as Jesus.

LAGOS-Christians in the Nigeria, yesterday, joined the rest of the world to mark Palm Sunday as they symbolically took palm branches and went out shouting "Hossana".

Like every year the pope has a busy schedule this week.

Various churches yesterday commemorated Palm Sunday, an event which signifies Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem ahead of his Crucifixion. On Holy Thursday he will visit the prison of Velletri, south of Rome, where he will wash the feet of 12 prisoners. And, on Easter Sunday the pope will give his traditional blessing to the city and to the world.
