Good Friday, in the Lord's Passion
The Good Friday liturgy marks the day of Christ’s suffering, crucifixion, and death and is a continuation of the Maundy Thursday liturgy. We begin in silence as we ended last night. On this most solemn of days, we fix our gaze on the cross at Golgotha.

About the event
Today the whole Church mourns the death of our Saviour. This is traditionally a day of sadness, spent in fasting and prayer.
According to the Church's ancient tradition, the sacraments are not celebrated on Good Friday nor Holy Saturday. "Celebration of the Lord's Passion," traditionally known as the "Mass of the Presanctified".
The altar is completely bare, with no cloths, candles nor cross. The service is divided into three parts: Liturgy of the Word, Veneration of the Cross and Holy Communion. The priest and deacons wear black vestments.
