Tenebrae is a contemplative meditation on Christ’s suffering. Readings trace the story of Christ’s passion, music portrays his pathos, and the power of silence and darkness suggests the drama of this momentous day. As lights are extinguished, we ponder the depth of Christ’s suffering and death. We remember the cataclysmic nature of his sacrifice as we hear the overwhelming sound of the “strepitus.” And through the return of the light at the conclusion of the service, we anticipate the joy of ultimate victory.
