On this first day of the month of April we celebrated the feast of the Entry of Our Lord into Jerusalem, often simply called Palm Sunday.   The palms, brought by Gerry a couple of days ago,  were blessed during Matins and so many people attended the service that we soon ran out of palms.  The church was packed with many standing outside in the cool morning air.  Soon after the Agape meal most of the people left which did not allow us to have one last singing rehearsal, so we shall rely on God’s mercy to allow the singing during the Pascal service to be good.  For the evening Bridegroom Service there were only three of us—Father Moses, Reader Markel and I, although I felt that it was a meaningful and profound service.  It was the first of the Holy Week services and, before long, we shall be at the Pascal service itself.
