At Tenebrae (Latin for “shadow” or “darkness”), we anticipate Christ’s suffering and death. Gradually all lights in the church are extinguished. The disappearance of the last light is accompanied by the startling strepitus, a great noise and shaking reminding us not only of the earthquake at Calvary but also of the cataclysmic effects of Our Lord’s Sacrifice of Himself.
