Jesus Christ makes a triumphant entry in Jerusalem on this day, day before Jewish Passover, and is welcomed by the city’s people waving throngs as he rides in on a donkey, clothes and alive branches are set on his path as blessing, following the spreading news that he had just resurrected Lazarus from the dead. And in Orthodox Christianity the Troparion recites “By raising Lazarus from the dead before Your passion, You did confirm the universal Resurrection, O Christ God! Like the children with the palms of victory, We cry out to You, O Vanquisher of death; Hosanna in the Highest! Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord!” It is a day crowned with joy, and today it is celebrated by the Christian Orthodox communities across the world, the joy shadowed by the upcoming sad events to come known as The Passion, Jesus’ arrest, torture and crucifixion. Also in some Orthodox tradition, Palm Sunday allows a few exceptions to the strict Lent rules, like eating foods like fish, otherwise forbidden, since this is a joyful day.
