This is the complete live stream feed of the blessing of the palms and olive branches, procession and Palm Sunday celebration direct from Vatican.
We keep watch the entire proceedings as Pope Francis will once more preside on the rites.
But while the traditional celebration in early years involve people waving with fresh fronds of palm during the procession, the tradition has evolved into tolerance in the replacement of palms in areas where it is difficult to obtain.
So now we have fresh young leaves of coconut trees, olive, available native trees, willow and yew.
Other than today’s blessing of the palms and olive branches, then procession and Palm Sunday Mass presided by Pope Francis, the celebration will not be complete without the culminating activity of the Angelus.
