CWN Editor's Note: “The city is closed, the world is closed,” Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa said on Palm Sunday at the place where Jesus wept over Jerusalem. The prelate also published a Palm Sunday message that began, “Today we have not celebrated the solemn and beautiful entrance of Jesus to the city of Jerusalem like every year, with faithful from all the parishes of the diocese and with pilgrims from all over the world … What is the Lord saying to us?
