MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Christians gathered in Vatican City Sunday, March 29th to join in the Palm Sunday Mass led by Pope Francis. Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus’ procession into Jerusalem. Crowds waved palm branches days before Jesus’ death and resurrection. In Milwaukee, Archbishop Jerome Listecki delivered a special Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist — explaining why Palm Sunday is so important.
“Today is most significant time for the liturgical year for the church,” Archbishop Listecki said.
Palm Sunday marks the start of “Holy Week” — the final days of Lent for Catholics and others.
