1 After this, aware that everything was now finished, in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I thirst.” here was a vessel filled with common wine. So they put a sponge soaked in wine on a sprig of hyssop and put it up to his mouth. When Jesus had taken the wine, he said, “It is finished.” And bowing his head, he handed over the spirit. John 19:29-30 "Hold the crucifix up before my eyes so I may see it until I die.” St Joan of Arc

2 Then Moses called all the elders of Israel, and said to them, "Select lambs for yourselves according to your families, and kill the passover lamb. Take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood which is in the basin, and touch the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood which is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. For the LORD will pass through to slay the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses to slay you. Exodus 12:21-23 “The Paschal Mystery attests that love is stronger than death-and is therefore salvific” John Paul II

3 After the Mass of the Lord's Supper, the faithful should be encouraged to spend a suitable period of time during the night in the church in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament that has been solemnly reserved. The Blessed Sacrament should be reserved in a closed tabernacle or pyx. Under no circumstances may it be exposed in a monstrance. After Mass, the altar should be stripped. It is fitting that any crosses in the church be covered with a red or purple veil We must imitate him and encounter him in the moments of solitude and silence dedicated to prayer. These providential spiritual pauses will help you all to be authentic missionaries of the Gospel. John Paul II April 6, 1997

4 In accordance with ancient tradition, the Church does not celebrate the Eucharist: Holy Communion is distributed … Roman Missal, "Good Friday," Celebration of the Lord's Passion, nn. 1, 3 Good Friday is a day of penance to be observed through abstinence and fasting. Paenitemini, II, 2; Acta Apostolicae Sedis 58 (1966): 183, Code of Canon Law, c All celebration of the sacraments on this day is strictly prohibited, except for the sacraments of penance and anointing of the sick. Roman Missal, "Good Friday," Celebration of the Lord's Passion, n. 1. Ad Missale Romanum, in Notitiae 13 (1977); 602. The celebration of the Lord's passion is to take place in the afternoon, at about three o'clock. An appropriate time may be chosen in order to allow the people to assemble more easily. Roman Missal, "Good Friday," Celebration of the Lord's Passion, n. 1. Ad Missale Romanum, in Notitiae 13 (1977); 602. The order for the celebration of the Lord's passion stems from an ancient tradition of the Church and may not be changed by anyone. But let us rend our hearts and not our garments, so that our fasting and our conversion may reach the deepest recesses of our person, and our Father, who sees in secret, will reward us (cf. Mt 6:3 ). John Paul II March 4, 1981

5 The priest and ministers proceed to the altar in silence, without any singing. The faithful should be standing, and thereafter should kneel in silent prayer. The priest and ministers make a reverence to the altar, prostrating themselves. This act of prostration, which is proper to the rite of the day, should be strictly observed for it signifies both the abasement of "earthly man," and also the grief and sorrow of the Church. Roman Missal, "Good Friday," Celebration of the Lord's Passion, n. 1. Ad Missale Romanum, in Notitiae 13 (1977) ….if we wish to be lifted up, we must first prostrate ourselves. St Jerome Letter 60 ….if we wish to be lifted up, we must first prostrate ourselves. St Jerome Letter 60

6 The readings are to be read in their entirety. The responsorial psalm and the chant before the gospel are to be sung in the usual manner. The narrative of the Lord's passion according to John is sung or read in the way prescribed for the previous Sunday (cf. n. 33). After the reading of the passion, a homily should be given, at the end of which the faithful may be invited to spend a short time in meditation. Ordinationes et Declarationes Circa Ordinem Hebdomadae Sanctae Instauratum., n. 9; cf. Caeremoniale Episcoporum, n Recalling thus the mysteries of redemption, the Church opens to the faithful the riches of her Lord's powers and merits, so that these are in some way made present for all time, and the faithful are enabled to lay hold upon them and become filled with saving grace. SACROSANCTUM CONCILIUM Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Second Vatican Council, 82

7 For veneration of the cross, let a cross be used that is of appropriate size and beauty, and let one or other of the forms for this rite be carried out with the splendor worthy of the mystery of our salvation. Showing the Cross. Accompanied by two ministers with lighted candles, the veiled cross is brought to the center of the sanctuary in procession. The priest accepts and uncovers the upper part of the cross, the right arm and then the entire cross. Both the invitation pronounced at the unveiling of the cross and the people's response should be made in song The cross is to be presented to each of the faithful individually for their adoration, since the personal adoration of the cross is a most important feature in this celebration. Only one cross should be used for the veneration. The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1Cor 1:18

8 The priest sings the invitation to the Lord's Prayer, which is then sung by all. The sign of peace is not exchanged. The communion rite is as described in the Missal. When communion has been distributed, the pyx [ Ciborium ] is taken to a place prepared for it outside of the church. After the celebration, the altar is stripped; the cross remains, however with four candles. An appropriate place can be prepared within the church, and there the Lord's cross is placed so that the faithful may venerate and kiss it and spend some time in meditation. It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun's light failed; * and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit!" And having said this he breathed his last. Luke 23: 44-46

9 PRESIDER, then Assembly depart in silence. Servers remain seated until the congregation departs. Holy Mass continues: On Holy Saturday, the Church is, as it were, at the Lord's tomb, meditating on his passion and death and on his descent into hell, awaiting his resurrection with prayer and fasting. The image of Christ crucified or lying in the tomb or the descent into hell, which mystery Holy Saturday recalls, as also an image of the sorrowful Virgin Mary, can be placed in the church for the veneration of the faithful. They took the body of Jesus and bound it with burial cloths along with the spices, according to the Jewish burial custom. Now in the place where he had been crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had yet been buried. So they laid Jesus there because of the Jewish preparation day; for the tomb was close by. John 19: 40-42
