In Anzoátegui, palms will not be blessed at mass on Palm Sunday

The mass that marks the beginning of Holy Week and where the palms are blessed, will be celebrated without the presence of the faithful in the more than 60 parishes that make up the two dioceses of the Anzoátegui state.

Religious authorities had already announced that all Easter liturgical celebrations will be held behind closed doors and broadcast on social media and radio stations.

This is the second year in a row that the coronavirus pandemic has prevented devotees from across the state from accompanying pastors in the solemn celebration of Palm Sunday.

Monsignor José Romero, Bishop of the Diocese of El Tigre, said that this year Catholics are invited to accompany us from their home, “they are asked to place a green branch on the door or window of their houses, in order to be present at the celebration ”.

The same request has been made by the Bishop of the Diocese of Barcelona, ​​Monsignor Jorge Aníbal Quintero, and in each parish “the believing family was invited to place a palm or olive branch at the entrance door of their houses, to remember the entrance triumphal of Jesus to Jerusalem ”.
