Seder Meal and Tenebrae Worship

SEDER-MEAL-PIC-1There was so much delicious food at our Seder Meal Potluck that we could have fed many more people. The tables groaned with all that folks had brought to share. We sang. We remembered. We rejoiced and cried with the anticipation of what was to come about.

Then we gracefully moved to worship. The choir sang as an Anthem O vos omnes by Carlos Correa (1680-c.1747)

O you all who walk by on the road, behold and see:

if there be any sorrow like my sorrow.

(Lamentations 1:12, Vulgate)

This marking the final moments of our Lord and Savior is always a precious event, because it prepares our hearts for the coming joy of his resurrection. Thanks to all who participated.
