Holy Week came into existence as an intense period of preparation (prayer and fasting) for Easter. It begins with Palm Sunday, where in the fourth century Jerusalem the distinctive feature was the palm procession from the Mount of Olives back into the city. The 1969 Roman calendar changed the title of the first day of Holy Week from Palm to Passion Sunday, a change that has been accepted by the calendars of a number of hymnals. Sure Foundation retains the emphasis on the events of Palm Sunday.


Este domingo recuerda la entrada triunfal de Jesús en Jerusalén; las multitudes que estaban en la ciudad para celebrar la Pascua lo recibieron con ramas de palma y lo aclamaron como el rey mesiánico. Los evangelios dicen que Jesús entró a la ciudad en un asno, cumpliendo la profecía de Zacarías 9:9. Los entusiastas que aclamaron al Salvador ese domingo, el viernes siguiente pidieron su crucifixión con un clamor equivalente. Lo habían aclamado como el nuevo rey que venía a sentarse en el trono de David, según narra Marcos 11:10, pero lo repudiaron cuando vieron que no era el rey terrenal y político que en su falsa sabiduría esperaban. En este sentido, el Domingo de Ramos es una buena ocasión para considerar la tendencia humana a hacer a Dios a su imagen y semejanza.
