3rd Lamentation-Jesus’s Crucifixion

March 20 @ 8:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Lamentations are a traditional Catholic devotion that contemplates the Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ through song, reflective prayer, and intercession before the Blessed Sacrament and preaching on the mystery of the Passion.  The service in its present form dates back to the 18th century in Warsaw, Poland, where it comprised a part of the Holy Week observances carried out at the city’s Holy Cross Church.  The poignant hymns and the heart-rending pathos of the meditations (known as “Intentions”) confront the one who prays and sings with the unyielding love and bitter agony of the Crucified Christ.

The third and final series fixes its gaze upon the mystery of Christ crucified and the sufferings which He endured from His nailing to the cross to His final breath.
