Archbishop Wenski officiates Palm Sunday Mass in Miami

MIAMI (WSVN) - South Florida’s Christian community came together to celebrate Palm Sunday.

Miami Archbishop Thomas Wenski blessed the palms at St. Mary’s Cathedral prior to celebrating the Mass, Sunday.

“The beauty of the liturgy gives witness to the truth of the events that we celebrate, that in Christ Jesus who died, we can rise to new life,” he said.

Always held the Sunday before Easter, the day marks the beginning of Holy Week and symbolizes the Bible passages that chronicle Jesus Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem prior to his death and resurrection.
