A Prayer for Palm Sunday 2020

Shared on Norwich Cathedral’s Palm Sunday Podcast, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jNBcTyQ7oM

Hosanna! We greet you, O Son of David,
not this year outside with a jostling crowd,
but quietly and at home, bound to each other by prayer.

Hosanna! We greet you, O long-awaited King,
not this year led into Church by cross and clergy,
but led instead by a renewed sense of the world’s deep need for you.

Hosanna! We greet you, O Christ,
not this year with palm branches,
but with the upturned palms of our hands,
ready and waiting to welcome and honour you. Amen.

– Canon Susanna Gunner
