"The Son and Word of the Father..."

Jesus Christ entering Jerusalem triumphantly on Palm Sunday (source)
The Son and Word of the Father, Who is beginningless and eternal together with Him, comes today seated on the foal of an ass to the city of Jerusalem, Whom the Cherubim desire to look upon but are unable to. Children praise Him, and with palms and branches of trees offer up praise mystically. Hosanna in the highest to Him Who is coming to save our whole people from delusion.
-from the Liti of Great Vespers for Palm Sunday
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
