n.b. Mass is not celebrated today.
His cross stands empty in a world grown silent
Through hours of anguish and of dread;
In stillness, earth awaits the resurrection,
While Christ goes down to wake the dead
He summons Adam and his generations,
Brings light where darkness endless seemed;
He frees and claims His own, so long held captive,
Who, with the living, are redeemed
Tenebrae (Office of Readings and Morning Prayer): 8.30 a.m.
Confessions will be heard from 10 a.m. throughout the day.
The Church waits in silence throughout the day for the proclamation of the Resurrection at the Easter Vigil
