• Archbishop Gomez Celebrates Good Friday Liturgy


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Archbishop Jose H. Gomez celebrated the Good Friday liturgy at noon today at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

    In the simplest liturgy of the church year, the account of the Passion and Death of Christ is proclaimed from the Gospel of John. As part of the liturgy, Gomez carried a cross into the cathedral, recalling how Jesus carried a cross along the Via Dolorosa, the “Way of Suffering,” on his way to being crucified.

    Special prayers will also be offered for the needs of the church and the world and the cross will be venerated. Holy Communion will then be given to the faithful. Additional liturgies will be celebrated at the cathedral at 3 p.m in English and 7 p.m. in Spanish.

    Good Friday, the day when Christ was crucified, is the only day on the Roman Catholic calendar on which Mass is not normally celebrated.
