Good Friday: Ukrainian Catholic Rite in Pictures

Today I also had the opportunity to go to my Ukrainian Rite Good Friday service. We had the procession with the burial shroud, but since I was part of the procession I couldn't get any pictures of it. Here are the few that I did get. It is quite amazing to be able to take part in both the Extraordinary Latin Rite service as well as the Ukrainian Eastern Rite. Both Rites are very rich in their liturgical practices and the theology one can learn from immersing themselves in them is stunning to say the least.
