Niedziela Palmowa

Christians today commemorate Christ’s entry into Jerusalem on a donkey, and this Sunday is also known as Palm Sunday as palm branches were laid on the path of his entry into the city, before he was betrayed and crucified on Good Friday. Hence, today marks the beginning of Holy Week, the last week in Lent.

I was fortunate to attend a choir performance of Faure’s Requeim at the Polish church of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Islington, a friend was singing Baritone, and got this photograph of three Polish shool boys selling homemade palms and cakes by the church entrance. These palms are wholly different from the ones handed out in the other churches.
