|Palm - Willow Sunday at St. Panteleimon Parish, Brooklyn, NY - 04/30/13|
In the life of the Holy Church, a tradition consists of any event or practice that occurs regularly in a diocese or even a local parish and has become expectation in the lives of the faithful. Such a tradition begins with a small “t” as opposed to Holy Tradition (capital “T”), which is equal to Holy Scripture – the teachings and dogmas handed down throughout the life of Christ’s Church. A tradition has developed in St. Panteleimon Parish, Brooklyn, NY according to which Metropolitan Antony annually visits the parish to bless the willow branches in commemoration of our Lord’s triumphant entrance into Jerusalem when the population of the city greeted Him – mistakenly, of course as an earthly king – crying out “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel”!
