The Hymns of Lamentations are sung this evening as we lament Jesus' undeserved death for our salvation. With both sorrow and joy we sing the Lamentations to Him who is symbolically buried, yet who we already know is risen.
During this service, the Epitaphios is taken in a candlelight procession around the church. At the conclusion, the flowers are given to the faithful which are symbolic of the many gifts the Lord has given us, the greatest of which is eternal life.
