Good Friday Tenebrae 2013

Good Friday
This is the prayer service that we use during the tenebrae on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, at  St. Emma Monastery. The one following is for Good Friday.

We use the triangle with 15 candles 14 brown and 1 white. The candles are extinguished after each of the psalms until the the only one remaining is the Christ candle which is taken away during the Christus factus est that is sung at the end of the tenebrae, it is brought back in we have the concluding prayer, and then leave in silence.

 We start with Vigils:

 Then we start Lauds right after Vigils
