A nice way to spend Good Friday, especially if you have to work or you’re housebound, is to listen to The Passion Narrative according to the Gospel of John in Latin Gregorian chant. Paraclete Press allows you to listen to either a streaming version or to download it to your computer. Unfortunately it’s in WMA (Windows Media format), so if you’re on a Mac I think you need QuickTime Pro ($20) to listen to WMA. I might be wrong about that so try it anyway.
I don’t have to work on Friday, but the kids nap between 1 and 3 so we won’t be going out to the parish for Good Friday. I think instead maybe we’ll listen to this and maybe watch “The Passion of The Christ” as well as say the prayers from the Divine Office.
