Pope gives tribute to Christian martyrs, during Palm Sunday Mass

2015-03-30

It's one of the most solemn Masses of the year. Wearing red and carrying a woven palm, Pope Francis started off Palm Sunday by leading a procession through St. Peter's Square. 

On the day that gives way to Holy Week,  Pope Francis talked about persecuted Christians, who are targeted specifically because of their faith. He went on to describe them as martyrs of our own time. 

POPE FRANCIS
"They refuse to deny Jesus and they endure insult and injury with dignity. They follow Him on His way. We can speak of a could of witnesses.'”

Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem, just days before His crucifixtion, death and Resurrection. 

With the Square decorated accordingly with roughly 2,000 palm and olive branches, pilgrims from all over the world attended the Mass. 

The Pope reminded Christians that Jesus was a humble God and with humility comes service, both in significant moments and in every day life. 

POPE FRANCIS
"We are helped and comforted by the example of so many men and women who, in silence and hiddenness, sacrifice themselves daily to serve others: a sick relative, an elderly person living alone, a disabled person, the homeless.” 

The Pope then called on Christians to leave vanity and pride aside and instead to embrace humility and service.
