On leaving the Vatican after his abdication: “I was deeply moved. The cordiality of the farewell, also the tears of my collaborators. [His voice breaks with emotion.] On the roof of the Casa Bonus Pastor there was written in huge letters «Dio gliene renda merito» [“May God reward you”]. (The Pope weeps) I was really deeply moved. In any case, while I hovered overhead and began to hear the bells of Rome tolling, I knew that I could be thankful and my state of mind on the most profound level was gratitude.”
— Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (23 May 2016)

Palm Sunday Passion Booklet - Free Download
published 12 March 2014 by Andrew R. Motyka

N THE PAST, our gracious hosts here at Corpus Christi Watershed have shared with us some PDFs of Palm Sunday Passion booklets. When looking through my files this year, though, I found that I was missing the Passion for Palm Sunday, Year A (this year).

When I searched this site and asked Jeff Ostrowski, he let me know that that was the one booklet that was never done, so I decided to whip one up. Thanks to the text input by a forum commenter “CGM” on the Musica Sacra Forums, formatting this was fairly easy.

Please download and use this free booklet of the Saint Matthew Passion.

The setup is very easy: simply print the pages, in order, front-to-back on landscape layout 8.5 × 11 paper. Staple it in the middle and fold it in half, and you have an easy-to-use Passion booklet for this year’s St. Matthew Passion. Enjoy.
