Our Lord Jesus Christ says, "If you abide in my word, you are my disciples indeed. You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free" (John 8:31-32).

Good Friday Tenebrae
A beautiful ending to our Good Friday observance this evening! We began with Matins this morning, moved on to Divine Service at Noon, then our Brief Devotion at the Sacred Hour at 3:00 p.m., and capped it off with Tenebrae this evening. So much Gospel goodness packed into one very special Day; almost wish it didn't have to come to an end. But, of course, then we wouldn't be able to move on to the immense joys of the Vigil and Festival of the Resurrection of Our Lord. So looking forward to those Services! And, we're blessed this year to have two Baptisms during the Vigil tomorrow night, so onward we go . . .
