DOMINGO DE RAMOS


The Palm Sunday rite commemorating the
triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem 
starts at a barangay chapel at the crack of dawn.
 


No one is spared the agony of getting out of bed 
so early on a Sunday... not even little angels.
 


The parish priest, playing the role of Jesus, 
is accompanied by the faithful carrying intricately woven
palm fronds in a procession towards the main parish church.
 


The procession pauses in front of four houses 
along the way...
 


where a choir of young women and girls 
dressed in white stand by the window...
 


sing an old Latin song of praise...
 


and shower flower petals...
 


on the priest and the sea of palm fronds below.
 


Then the procession slowly makes its way 
to the main church...
 


in a celebration of Filipino creativity and faith.
