A young girl attends Palm Sunday celebrations at the Cathedral of Managua. Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, and commemorates Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, welcomed by crowds waving palm branches, before his arrest, trial, crucifixion and resurrection. It is traditionally marked by a procession and special Mass.
