It's Holy Week (in the Western church) brothers. Four days until the Passion of our Lord. Are we doing anything to commemorate it?

>Are we doing anything to commemorate it?
I'll probably be going to Mass on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I didn't make it to Holy Monday or Holy Tuesday and probably won't make it to Tenebrae or to Holy Wednesday.
>>24196 (OP) 
The church I'm visiting (nondenominational) is great in most ways but didn't do any special observation of Lent and won't have Thursday/Friday services this week. Feels very weird to me (raised mainline) although I'm told it's not uncommon. I might look for something else to go to.

Who, when his hour had come, on the night before he went up to the cross, that is this night, to make full atonement for the sins of the whole world, offering once and for all his one sacrifice of himself, took bread and gave thanks; he broke it and gave it to his disciples saying,
>Take, eat: This is my body, which is given for you; Do this in remembrance of me.
In the same way, after supper, he took the cup and gave you thanks; he gave it to them, saying,
>Drink this, all of you; This is my blood of the new covenant which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.
Is anyone able to host a Passion of the Christ stream?
It's Good Friday, friends.

>O My people, what have I done to you? How have I offended you?
>Answer me.
>I scourged Egypt for your sake with its first-born sons and you scourged me and handed me over.
>I led you out of Egypt as Pharaoh lay sunk in the Red Sea and you handed me over to the chief priests.
>I opened up the sea before you and you opened my side with a lance.
>I went before you in a pillar of cloud and you led me into Pilate's palace.
>I fed you with manna in the desert and on me you rained blows and lashes.
>I gave you saving water from the rock to drink and for drink you gave me gall and vinegar.
>I struck down for you the kings of the Canaanites and you struck my head with a reed.
>I put in your hand a royal sceptre and you put on my head a crown of thorns.
>I exalted you with great power and you hung me on the scaffold of the cross.
>O My people, what have I done to you? How have I offended you?
>Answer me.

Rejoice, heavenly powers! Sing choirs of angels!
Exult, all creation around God's throne! Jesus Christ, our King, is risen! Sound the trumpet of salvation!
Rejoice, O earth, in shining splendour, radiant in the brightness of your King! Christ has conquered! Glory fills you! Darkness vanishes forever!
Rejoice, O Mother Church! Exult in glory!
The risen Saviour shines upon you! Let this place resound with joy, echoing the mighty song of all God's people!

This is the night when you first saved our Fathers: you freed the people of Israel from their slavery and led them dry-shod through the sea.
This is the night when the pillar of fire destroyed the darkness of sin!
This is the night when Christians everywhere, washed clean of sin and freed from all defilement, are restored to grace and grow together in holiness.
This is the night when Jesus Christ broke the chains of death and rose triumphant from the grave.

O Death, where is your victory?
O Death, where is your sting?
