Olive Sunday in the Ambrosian Rite

As I had noted just prior to the Triduum, my intent was to provide no further coverage of Palm Sunday's ceremonies, barring something rather unique and I think the following photos which show Olive Sunday (Palm Sunday) in the (modern) Ambrosian rite certainly qualifies. The Mass was celebrated by Don Valentino Viganò, parish priest of Sormano, Caglio and Rezzago at the Santuario di Campoè -- a beautiful little shrine church within the archdiocese of Milan. I have had the pleasure of having visited this shrine; a shrine both remarkable for its beauty inside, and for the beauty of its natural surroundings.
