In the article the author first presents historical development
of this solemnity and stresses that it, since its beginnings, has
celebrated two mysteries – Christ’s festive entry into Jerusalem and
his passion. It is shown that in Roman liturgy originally it was just
the Sunday of Passion, and later on procession with branches spread
from the East all over the entire Church. The author also shows the
development of this solemnity up to the last liturgical reform, and
presents the current regulations on the celebration of that solemnity
according to the third edition of Missal from 2002.
In the end he carries out all the seven prayers that Missal brings
for this day: their origins and their theology. The prayers reflect the
Easter mystery of Christ’s death on the cross, of his resurrection and
glory. The same prayer texts emphasise that all that happened for the
sake of our salvation. Christ justifies us and takes us to his heavenly
glory, to eternal celebration of heavenly Jerusalem.
