The Celebration of the Passion of the Lord – Služba Muke Gospodnje
Today we remember the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Today and Tomorrow we are keeping a solemn Paschal fast to honour suffering and death of the Lord Jesus, and to prepare to share more deeply in the joy of his resurrection.
Good Friday is a universal day of fasting and abstinence from meat.
For Today’s Celebration I encourage you to have a crucifix (you can cover it with purple cloth) placed reverently near you as you watch the live-streamed celebration and to unveil it and then venerate it as we do it in the church. (See the attached worship aid for details)
Today we begin the Novena to Divine Mercy. As our Archbishop asked us. The intention is for “an end to corona-virus health crisis in Canada and throughout the world. We include in our prayers the intentions of all health care workers and those who are struggling with the virus and those who have died.”
You can access the chaplet of divine Mercy
I hope to pray it after the celebration of the Passion of the Lord and continue the next day at 3:00 PM.
Praying for you.
