The service of Tenebrae, meaning “darkness” has been practiced throughout history and became an important part of the worship during Holy Week. The purpose of this service of worship is to reflect deeply on the sufferings and death of Christ for us and our salvation. Tenebrae is marked by meditation on Christ’s suffering. In a candle-lit sanctuary, Christ’s suffering is commemorated through the reading of the Scripture. Candles are extinguished one by one as we listen to the account of Christ’s suffering and death. After the last verse is read, the last candle is put out, and the room is plunged into darkness.
