This event has completed
“... hung upon the cross, He who suspended the Earth amid the waters... He, who wrapped the heavens in clouds is clothed with the purpose of mockery. He was transfixed with nails, who is the Bridegroom of the Church... We worship your passion, O Christ. Show us also your glorious resurrection.” - Vespers of Great Friday
