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.

As one of the few cities in the Middle East where religious freedom exists, Jerusalem hosted massive Palm Sunday celebrations for Christian pilgrims over the weekend.

The pope wore bright red vestments and held a braided palm as he and many cardinals and bishops took part in a long procession before he held mass at an open-air altar in front of Saint Peter's Basilica.

Scores of worshippers descended on St Peter's Square this morning for the enormous Palm Sunday Mass service as Holy Week celebrations get underway in the Vatican.

Palm Sunday marks the day Jesus made his triumphant entry into Jerusalem.

He said: 'Joyful acclamations at Jesus's entrance into Jerusalem, followed by his humiliation. "This twofold mystery accompanies our entrance into Holy Week each year", the Pope said.

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

Pope Francis has warned tens of thousands of faithful that giving in to triumphalism and spiritual worldliness is the "most treacherous temptation threatening the Church".

The day ushers in Holy Week, which will include Way of the Cross processions around the world to commemorate the Passion, or suffering, of Jesus on Good Friday and his death by crucifixion.

BLESS US. Inmates at the Manila City Jail wave their palm fronds, and raise their hands, as they pray for blessings on Palm Sunday, April 14, 2019.
