The joy of a Good Friday in Jerusalem is also that of simply being in the place where all these events occurred. The recitation of the Passion by the Franciscan friars is interspersed with hymns, animated by the Choir of the Custody of the Holy Land. This Passion, whose last moments will take place in the very place where Christ lived them, resounds with a particular gravity. The exaltation of the Cross in the liturgy is always impressive. But here, at Calvary, it is done with a relic of the Holy Cross.
