I share with you photos from the various service of Holy Thursday at our church in Ramallah, Palestine. Starting with the washing of the altar, washing of the feet, and the 12 bible reading and matins.
As for the chant of the day, it is by the angelic voice of Fairuz
Today he who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon a Tree, (x3)
He who is King of the Angels is arrayed in a crown of thorns.
He who wraps the heaven in clouds is wrapped in mocking purple.
He who freed Adam in the Jordan receives a blow on the face.
The Bridegroom of the Church is transfixed with nails.
The Son of the Virgin is pierced by a lance,.
We worship your Sufferings, O Christ (x3)
Show us also your glorious Resurrection.
