“Today is Palm Sunday: as we remember Our Lord’s welcome into Jerusalem, I am pleased to greet all of you, especially the many young people who have come here to pray with me.”

Benedict XVI was dressed in his red vestment which is traditional for Palm Sunday. He then spoke about the importance of Holy Week as it leads to the celebration of Easter.
