With full LSB rites for Chief Service at noon, and Tenebrae Vespers. No question that Tenebrae Vespers continues to be the more popular in our parish, with over 200 in attendance tonight, but only slightly more than 30 for the "Chief" (!!!) Service. But those who attended both can attest that they are very different liturgies, and each seems to me to be an important part of Good Friday.
At the Vespers I especially love the praying of the 4 psalms. We don't pray the psalms nearly as often as we should, and on a day like today, well, they are just perfect. When all our words fail, God gives us the gift of these Words for our prayer that are both prayer to Him and Words from Him.
Now we eagerly wait for the joy of Pascha breaking into the darkness tomorrow evening.
