Palm Sunday, 2010.  As the 10 o'clock Mass begins, we gather--one thousand strong!--in O'Dea Gym for the traditional blessing of palms.

Seattleites are never afraid of a little rain, but just as the procession began, the clouds broke, and the sun made a brief appearance!

Singing "Hosanna in excelsis!" we process with palm branches,

The singing of Psalm 22 leads us into the reading of the Passion according to St. Luke:  "My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?"

On Palm Sunday, the Passion is read by three voices,
a narrator, Jesus, and the crowd.
