Friday, April 18, 2014, 3:00 PM - 12:00 AM
We kneel in silence, reflecting on Our Lord's Passion and Death, the ultimate act of love for God's people. The Liturgy of the Word is solemnly celebrated. We make intercessions for the world. We offer veneration of the Precious Relic of the Wood of the True Cross of Jesus Christ. Holy Communion is then given. On this holy and solemn day, we venerate the Sacred Wood of the True Cross enshrined in our church, pieces from the very Cross upon which Our Lord gave His Life in sacrifice to save our lives. The faithful may venerate the Relic in silence after the Passion Liturgy and have religious articles touched to the Relic, making them third-class relics of the True Cross.
