So who makes those incredible palms that the pope carries on Palm Sunday?

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 04/11/17

Now it can be told, via Rome Reports:



Without palms like these, Palm Sunday would not be the same. What few know is where they are made, especially the ones used for the procession in St. Peter’s Square.

In the Serrano Valero family workshop, more than five generations have been dedicated to the work of the white palm. A tradition dating back to 1371.
