Good Friday

My apologies for the absence of photographs from the Mass of the Lord's Supper here in Roman Catholic Appalachia; I was the MC at that Mass, and I think it might have been weird to whip out a camera.

This is it, friends. The great darkness has descended as our Lord is lying in his grave, or so it seems that he is. At this very moment (not literally, please), he is descending to Hell itself, and upon his return he will carry the keys to death, Hell, and the grave. And so we wait.

Before the Liturgy of the Lord's Passion and Death, St. Louis IX Church, Gallipolis

Adoramus Te, Christe, et benedicimus Tibi, Quia per sanctam crucem Tuam redemisti mundum, Domine, miserere nobis!
Pax et bonum.
