On Holy Friday, we take down the icon of Christ's body from the cross and wrap it in a new, white linen sheet and lay it in the flower covered funeral bier. This service is short and quite beautiful. Afterward, we begin a vigil, reading the Psalms continuously until the resurrection on Easter.

[Orthodox Easter is a week later than Western Easter this year.]
