Good Friday

Every year during the Triduum, we put aside the regular table reading book and read the four passion narratives from the Gospels in succession.  This effectively amounts to four meals, two on Good Friday and two on Holy Saturday.  At the end of each of those meals, when the Abbot gives the signal, the Table Reader reads a passage from the Rule of Saint Benedict to conclude the meal.  The passage is always the following (RB 7:34):  “The third step of humility is that a man submits to his superior in all obedience for the love of God, imitating the Lord of whom the Apostle says:  He became obedient even to death.”
