Tenebrae: A Service of Shadows for Good Friday

If you have five candles, prepare for this service by arranging them in front of you and lighting them. After each reading, extinguish one candle.


Opening Sentences:

God is light, in whom there is no darkness at all. Jesus Christ is the light of the world. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and we loved darkness rather than light.
