Did you know. . .
“Tenebrae” is Latin for shadows or darkness. The Tenebrae service can be used for Good Friday or Maundy Thursday. Each candle is extinguished one by one, symbolizing the extinguishing of Jesus on the Cross. It is a solemn and somber service, recreating the emotional aspects of the Passion story, the sense of the betrayal, abandonment, and agony of the events. It is left unfinished, because the story isn’t over until Easter Day.
