(Usus Antiquior) Palm Sunday (I Classis) – Sunday, 2 April 2023 : Entry into the Church

Liturgical Colour : Red


Ingredente Domino in sanctam civitatem, Hebraeorum pueri resurrectionem vitae pronuntiantes, Cum ramis palmarum : Hosanna, clamabant, in excelsis.

Priest : Cumque audisset populus, quod Jesus veniret Jerosolymam, exierunt obviam ei. Cum ramis palmarum : Hosanna, clamabant, in excelsis.

Priest : Dominus vobiscum.

Response : Et cum spiritu tuo.


Domine Jesu Christe, Rex ac Redemptor noster, in cujus honorem, hos ramos gestantes, solemnes laudes decantavimus : concede propitius : ut, quocumque hi rami deportati fuerint, ibi tuae benedictionis gratia descendat, et, quavis daemonum iniquitate vel illusione profligata, dextera tua protegat, quos redemit. Qui vivis et regnas cum Deo Patre in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.

English translation


As our Lord entered the holy city, the Hebrew children, declaring the resurrection of life, with palm branches cried out, “Hosanna in the highest!”

Priest : When the people heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, they went forth to meet Him, with palm branches cried out, “Hosanna in the highest!”

Priest : The Lord be with you.

Response : And with your spirit.

Let us pray.

O Lord Jesus Christ, our King and Redeemer, in whose honour we have borne these palms and gone on praising You with song and solemnity, mercifully grant that wherever that these palms are taken, there the grace of Your blessing may descend. May every wickedness and trick of the demons be frustrated, and may Your right hand protect those it had redeemed. You who lives and reigns with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.
