A Palm Sunday Procession

Today, Palm Sunday, is the first day of Holy Week, a day which commemorates the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, as told in the Gospels:

"On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, 'Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.' And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, 'Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt'." (Gospel of St John, King James Version.)

As it is still marked here in Spain in the same way that it was marked in England in medieval and Tudor times, I thought I'd share some footage of the Palm Sunday procession from my nearest town, Tijola. I hope you enjoy it.

Sadly, Covid has put a stop to Semana Santa (Holy Week) processions this year.
