Good Friday

March 30, 2018

Good Friday is all about the Passion. On Palm Sunday we read the Passion according to Matthew; on Good Friday, we hear the Passion according to John. Just like on Palm Sunday, we have a part to play: We are the “crowd,” the ones who shout things like “Crucify him!”

During the service, look for:

  • A silent start, with the priest prostrate on the poor.
  • Many prayers for the whole world.
  • Veneration of the cross.
  • No consecration of the host or Liturgy of the Eucharist.
  • Stripping the altar.
