Mt. Calvary Catholic Church in Baltimore will be live streaming Tenebrae at 7:30 p.m. EDT. (See above).
What is Tenebrae? It is an evening prayer service of monastic origin held on Wednesday in Holy Week to recreate the betrayal, abandonment, and agony of the passion events. It begins with a full candelabra (called a “hearse”) and dim lighting. With each chanted cycle of prayer, the lights dim and a candle is lost until the people are left with an actual and emotional experience of darkness–the loss of the hoped-for savior. The service is left unfinished as all leave silently with a ray of hope from one candle relighted, the promise of Easter. Since no sacrament is offered, personal reflection is the action of Tenebrae, driving one of the most emotionally poignant moments in the liturgical calendar.
Tenebrae is at Mount Calvary at 7:30 pm this Wednesday
John Covert has a Tenebrae service published at his Daily Morning and Evening Prayer site.
The booklet has the music for the antiphons.
