Holy and Great Friday (in the evening)

Gathered in the night around the Kuvuklia with the Holy Epitaphio, as if around the Tomb of Christ, with prayer and contemplation we pay tribute to the mystery of this Life-giving Tomb. The heart-breaking verses of lamentation carve with the indelible words of sorrowful cross-bearing cry the mystery of the Passions and the Burial in our hearts. “The humankind and the heavenly powers stand bewildered before Thy Tomb, Christ, astonished by the unseen mystery” – resounds the touching voice of our beloved Elder, Bishop Parthenius.
