1. Pilgrimages (in other words, making a sacrifice for God)
2. Public Profession (in other words, showing people we’re not embarrassed to be Catholic)
3. Stational Churches (in other words, harkening back to the days when the people would process to different Churches in Rome)
However, here’s what GIA’s Worship IV says about the Palm Sunday procession:
“Such a movement of people expresses the experience of Lent: the Church has been called to move on, to go ever further toward the paschal mystery of death and resurrection.” (#1048)
Is this statement true? Anyone?
