Passion Sunday A.D. 2017

On 2 April 2017, Passion Sunday, also known as domingo de Lázaro in Hispanophone countries (from the gospel of the Mass in the Mozarabic Rite, which is the same as the gospel in the Ambrosian Rite), Mass was celebrated at the Parish of the Most Holy Redeemer in the Diocese of Cubao. Assisting were members of the Societas Ecclesia Dei Sancti Ioseph – Una Voce Philippines. In choir was the Cappella Gregoriana S. Cæciliæ olim Xicatunensis.

At the aspersion, at the chanting of the Epistle, and at the distribution of Holy Communion. Note the altarpiece and statues veiled in purple. The practice of veiling the altar and the statues after the first vespers of Passion Sunday strongly evokes the gospel of the Sunday (“But Jesus hid Himself, and went out from the temple”). The veils will only be taken down at the singing of the Gloria in the Mass of the Easter Vigil.

Ut in omnibus laudetur Dominus.
