The light extinguished: Christ died.
Let us pray.
We confess unto Thee, O God Almighty, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, and before all the company of heaven, that we have sinned, in thought, in word, and in deed, through our fault, through our own fault, through our own most grievous fault. Wherefore we pray Thee, O God, to have mercy upon us.
Almighty God, most merciful Father, grant us pardon, absolution and remission of all our sins; through the merit and mediation of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
