Last night the Solemn High Mass of the Lord's Supper was celebrated on Papa Stronsay
|Fr Yousef Marie sings the Gospel according to St John|
It was on this night that Our Lord left us His greatest gift in the Most Holy Sacrament; His Body and Blood.
At the end of Holy Mass the Blessed Sacrament is taken to the Altar of Repose
After which is the stripping of the altar
Divisérunt sibi vestiménta mea: et super vestem meam misérunt sortem
They parted my garments amongst them; and upon my vesture they cast lots.
We then keep watch with Our Lord until midnight
