Holy Friday Matins

Everything is quiet, service has ended.  The faithful have venerated the icon of Christ, shown in death, in the middle of the church, along with the Gospel.  Home for rest and services again in the morning.  On Saturday with joy we read the Old Testament teachings and sing the glorious songs of Christ's decent into Hades and triumph over death.
