Join us for "Tenebrae" - a musical meditation on the seven "last words" of Christ on the Cross - at St. Vincent de Paul Church (1502 E Wallen Rd) on Good Friday, April 14, at 9PM. Tenebrae is the Latin word for “darkness.” The gradual extinguishing of all candles in the church symbolizes the temporary triumph of the prince of darkness over the Light of the World. The loud noise, or strepitus, at the conclusion of the service suggests the earthquake described in the Passion narratives. The single candle left burning, the Paschal candle, is the symbol and promise of Christ’s triumph over death and darkness.
We invite you to join us in sharing this meaningful tradition at St. Vincent de Paul Church in the Life Center (1502 E Wallen Rd) on Holy Saturday (April 15) at 10AM. The custom of bringing food to church to be blessed for Easter breakfast is an age-old tradition in many European countries and is still practiced in our country by their descendants. The religious significance attached to the foods eaten is symbolic of Christ Himself, our true Passover. This custom stems from the desire of the Christian community to ask God’s blessing on the foods that will break the Great Fast (Lent). The food is blessed on Holy Saturday to be eaten after the Saturday Vigil or on Easter Sunday morning.
- Rosary recited at 6:00 PM.
- Short reflection following mass Take a walk with our Lord this Lent as you learn to unite your sufferings with Him. Each week a guest speaker will offer a short talk after mass to help live out Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection in our daily lives.
