From a reader:
In preparation for Holy Week I (for the first time ever) read PASCHALES SOLEMNITATIS and noted that in paragraph 40 it states that "It is recommended that there be a communal celebration of the Office of Readings and Morning Prayer on Good Friday and Holy Saturday." I would like to have the opportunity to do this in my parish, although to my knowledge it has not been done in the past. eBreviary actually provides the prayers in PDF form for these days free of charge. I am considering asking our pastor if he would permit such a communal celebration in our parish chapel. Would I be off base in doing so? Is there anything that I need to take into account if we are given permission to go forward (i.e., is Morning Prayer on Good Friday and Holy Saturday at the same time as always – or is it prayed the night before [I am somewhat confused how these prayers relate to Tenebrae]?).
I don’t think it is off-base to ask to do something that is recommended by the Church.
The morning office, which has a special structure, during the Triduum is called "Tenebrae".
I think I will open this up to the readership.
