We celebrated the feast of the Entrance of Our Lord into Jerusalem with the church full of people.  Unfortunately, Vladika Lazar was not able to attend as he was exhausted and he wanted to conserve his energy for the services this Holy Week.  Palms and pussy willow branches were brought yesterday and even some today by Vera who brought them from Washington.  Sergey brought his grandmother from Richmond, although it was difficult for her, as she is confined to a wheelchair, but she was determined to come to the monastery.  The Bridegroom Service in the evening was touching, even if Father Moses and I did not look over the service and sang from memory at times.  After having had this service, we had a feeling of fully entering into the fullness of Holy Week.
