Great and Holy Friday



Today He who hung the earth upon the waters
Is hung upon a tree

He who is King of the angels
Is arrayed in a crown of thorns

He who wraps the heavens in clouds
Is wrapped in the purple of mockery

He who freed Adam in the Jordan
Receives a blow on the face

The Bridegroom of the Church
Is affixed to the cross with nails

The Son of the Virgin
Is pierced by a spear

We worship Thy passion, O Christ!

Show us also Thy glorious resurrection!

-From the Ninth Hour Service of the Royal Hours of Great and Holy Friday

And you also, Mimi. I was blessed to be able to attend from the 6th hour Gospel reading on for the Royal Hours this morning, which was good because I couldn't be at the Gospel readings last night.

I hope your mom had a good week following her treatment.

Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ!
