Holy Thursday

Tantum Ergo is sung at the close of the Holy Thursday Liturgy, as the Holy Eucharist is processed out of the church to its place of repose until Easter, symbolizing Christ's body laying in the tomb.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
