Palm Sunday, with the double remembrance of Jesus’ Triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Mass combined with the Procession) and the Anointing of Bethany (Mass during the day), introduces us to Holy Week, called – since the most ancient documents of the Ambrosian liturgy – Hebdomada authentica (Authentic Week), which is the “eminent” week between all the weeks in the liturgical year and therefore a typical and normative week.

We celebrate the Lord's Easter: Mystery of death and resurrection, which calls us not to remain as mute spectators and asks us to allow ourselves to be involved and inwardly transformed by God's love for us. We express our intention to follow Jesus to the foot of the cross, overcoming the darkness of betrayal and death, in the certainty that the Lord is the "firstborn of those who rise from the dead" (Epistle: Colossians 1:18).
Let there be two sentiments in particular during these days: praise, as those who welcomed Jesus in Jerusalem did, and thanksgiving, because in this "Authentic Week" the Lord Jesus renews the gift of his life.

It is possible to follow the Pontifical at 10.45am and Vespers at 4.30pm in streaming on this site (www.duomomilano.it) from the YouTube channel Duomo Milano Tv.
