Mexico, Oaxaca, Oaxaca de Juarez, April 17, 2011. On the Sunday before Easter, Mexico's most important holiday, two very different congregations marked the beginning of Semana Santa and the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem with prayer and processions. The Templo de la Compania de Jesus welcomed Archbishop Jose Luis Chavez Botello for the "Blessing of the Palms" in central Oaxaca, while the small community of Santa Cruz de Xoxocotlan carried Jesus through rainy streets strewn with flowers.
