"Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage."
C. S. Lewis

Semana Santa

13 April 2014 - Palm Sunday in Spain

Celebrating the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem - the beginning of Semana Santa - Holy Week -
 Christians all over the world proclaimed Hosanna to the King of Kings and waved their palm fronds or in our case, we waved olive tree branches. Walking to church today in the town I am staying - Alcala de Henares we saw people carrying their branches.

Everywhere we go it is quite easy to get there by walking. I enjoy so much seeing the ordinary scenes of life as we go by.

We hear church bells all day long from churches that are three and four hundred years old - it is all very comforting and joyful.

But today is Palm Sunday - so we were able to catch glimpses of people returning home from church.

This looked like to me a little girl and her Grandfather going to church.
