Palm Sunday in Bucharest-again!
Today is Easter 5 for us in the Church of England. However, in the Orthodox calendar today is Palm Sunday, or Duminica Floriilor in Romanian. Yesterday afternoon there were services and parades all over Romania symbolising the entry into Jerusalem and today as well as church services there are markets and exhibitions in almost every park and public area in the towns and cities around the country.
These photographs are taken from the Peasants Market in Bucharest, where craftsmen had gathered from all over Romania to display the fruits of their labours. The sun was shining, the meat from the grill was tasting delicious, and everywhere there was evidence of God's goodness and glory.
