Dancing, music and palms ushered Jesus riding on a donkey in a re-enactment of Palm Sunday at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Falls Church April 9.

Hundreds from the Hispanic community lifted palms, some folded into intricate crosses, for a blessing of holy water at the beginning of the Spanish-language Mass. Father Alan Ventura, parochial vicar of St. Anthony of Padua, celebrated the Mass. In his homily, he said that Jesus’ resurrection reconciled man with God.
