Again this year for Good Friday I’ve included the links to the AIC’s series for Good Friday, In the Cross of Christ I Glory. The program was written for use at my former parish from Noon to 3 PM on Good Friday, based on a version of the Seven Words from the Cross which was first read in 1946 A.D. The original author relied upon a homily written in 1904 A.D. To their work I added prayers and quotations from the Holy Fathers of the 4th Century and later.
The format is an opening address followed by seven sets of prayers and meditations for the seven words from the Cross and a closing address. The entire text is found on pages 75-101 of the AIC Bookstore Publication, Occasional Services for Anglican Worship, now available in paperback and Kindle editions using the links in the Virtual Bookstore section at the bottom of the home page of the AIC Web Site where you found this Blog.

Glory be to God for all things! Amen!
