It is a worthy practice to devote time during the season of Lent to meditate extensively upon the Passion of our Lord. The following suggestions are framed around the reading of the Passion according to St. Luke, combined with an Old Testament reading emphasis upon God’s vindication of “the innocent sufferer.”
Either Evening Prayer or Vespers is the assumed service; it would be appropriate to use the Litany of the Passion to replace the prayers. It follows the suggested propers.
