    POPE PAUL VI TODAY (SUNDAY) BLESSED PALM FRONDS AND DISTRIBUTED THEM TO CARDINALS AND PRELATES TO MARK THE OPENING OF EASTER WEEK.

    THE COLOURFUL PALM SUNDAY CEREMONY IN THE SISTINE CHAPEL RECALLED CHRIST'S TRIUMPHAL ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM WHEN HE WAS GREETED WITH PALM BRANCHES FIVE DAYS BEFORE THE PASSION.

    THE POPE SAT ON A RAISED THRONE BENEATH MICHELANGELO'S GIANT FRESCO OF THE LAST JUDGEMENT, FLANKED BY TWO CARDINALS. HE GAVE THE LAST THEN FRONDS TO YOUTHS FROM CATHOLIC ASSOCIATIONS.

    AFTER THE CEREMONY A PROCESSION LEFT THE SISTINE CHAPEL AND PASSED ALONG THE SCALA REGIA TO THE PORTICO IN FRONT OF ST. PETER'S BASILICA.

    THOUSANDS OF TOURISTS JOINED ROMANS FOR THE PALM SUNDAY MASS WHICH THE POPE CELEBRATED IN ST. PETER'S. THE CONGREGATION WAVED PALMS IN GREETING AS THE PAPAL PROCESSION SLOWLY DOWN THE GREAT CENTRE AISLE.
