Service of Tenebrae Wednesday, April 5 at 7:00pm

One of the liturgies that has for centuries been part of the Catholic tradition of the church, but has somehow been neglected by some churches is the Service of Tenebrae, which is at present observed on Holy Wednesday by the Episcopal Church.

Although Tenebrae has not been observed at All Saints’ San Diego for quite a number of years now, it would be a worthwhile addition to the liturgical richness and tradition of our local church, and we will be observing it this year.

Tenebrae is an office structured around psalms, readings, and responsories. Its distinctive ceremony includes the use of fifteen lighted candles (or seven in the shorter form we will be using), set on a special stand. One candle is extinguished as each of the appointed psalms is completed. The remaining candle, symbolic of Christ, is left lighted at the end of the final psalm. But it is carried away to be hidden, which signifies the apparent victory of the forces of evil.

A sudden loud noise in made at the end of the service, symbolizing the earthquake at Christ’s death. The lighted candle is then restored to its place, suggesting Christ’s eventual triumph.

Let us take part in this impactful and spiritually rich service on Holy Wednesday this year!

On Sunday (June 5th) the Church Universal celebrated the Feast of Pentecost, the occasion when Jesus’ first followers, gathered in Jerusalem for the Jewish Feast of the Weeks, also known as Shavuot—or Pentecost, in Greek—were powerfully filled with the Holy Spirit and proclaimed the Good News of Salvation in Jesus to the multilingual and multicultural crowd gathered in Jerusalem for the feast, and each of them heard the powerful message spoken in their own language.
