Today, Good Friday, I attended noonday tenebrae at Church Around the Corner. Surprisingly, the photos I took of the chancel didn't turn out well at all: exposure, etc. was fine, but composition and vantage point weren't, so I'm not posting any here or on fb. We heard the passion account from the Gospel of John; we sang and meditated upon several hymns, including:
When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of glory died,
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride.
Were the whole realm of nature mine,
that were a present far too small.
Love so amazing, so divine,
demands my soul, my life, my all.
We left the building in silence.
