After Holy Mass on the evening of Maundy Thursday, celebrating that first Mass and the institution of the priesthood, we accompanied Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament to the altar of repose, where, like the apostles so many years before, we watched with Him, awaiting the coming of His sorrowful passion.
Good Friday, and the commemoration of that death, by which we live.
After the Good Friday ceremony the statue of the body of Christ was carried in procession to the sepulcher. However, due to very high winds, the normal procedure of carrying Our Lord on a bier had to be abandoned and a vehicle used instead. On arriving, the rosary was said, the lamentations of Jeremiah sung as well as the last part of the passion relating how Saint Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Our Lord, and the burial of Our Lord. Then some hymns were sung. After devotion had been fully satisfied, all withdrew.
