Our Good Friday service.
45 of us entered in silence. The stations of the cross set up around the room. Only a black cloth covering the altar.
Chanted Psalm 22
A sermon of only questions.
O Sacred Head Now Wounded.
Procession of the crucifix - Chant: "behold the life-giving cross on which hung the savior of the whole world" response: "O come let us worship Him"
The cross is laid on the altar.
Adoration of the cross: bowing, laying purple tulips, kissing it....
The Solemn Reproaches
"Were You There When They Crucified My Lord" acapella (of course) during station of the cross.
Leaving as we arrived: in silence.
Then several of us took all the tulips that had been placed at the cross and laid them where there had been a shooting in Denver last week.
And from an email from my beloved friend Sara: honey, it's unstoppable now. he's rising. death is finished.
