|Eastern Rite Epitaphios (Burial Shroud). Carried in procession by priests |
on Good Friday and remains in the Church for Easter.
Today is the seventh day of the week. This is the day God rested after creating the heavens and the earth. This is the day God rested in the tomb after sacrificing Himself for His Bride the Church; that He might be used by the Father as the instrument to sanctify His Bride.
We worship Thy Passion, O Christ! Show us Thy Resurrection!
