As is custom in the Holy Land the first Saturday of Lent sees a Solemn Entry in the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre. One of the auxiliary bishops, representing the Patriarch, is solemnly greeted at the stone of the unction by the President of the Most Holy Sepulchre, Fr Fergus OFM. The Solemn entry goes around various of the Holy Places, the chapel of the finding of the Cross, the Armenian Chapel, Calvary, the Anastasis, the Franciscan Chapel and ends with a Solemn High Mass on the altar of St Mary Magdalen a few yards away from the Anastasis itself. Enjoy the pictures.
