The picture with the crucifix in view, reminded me of what our enlightened bishop did here about twenty years ago. By the flash of some 'spirit', it must have dawned upon him that for the veneration of the cross, we had been doing it wrong; he was going to rectify the situation.

He decreed that the chant,"by the wood of the cross", was to be taken literally, and thus, he mandated that no crucifixes were to be venerated for Holy Week services. Presented to the faithful were stark, wooden crosses.

I have such "fond" memories of those days. :-D

Are they using the 1962 Missal? Reason I ask is some of the Vigil Masses are starting at 5 p.m. or a bit earlier. I am not aware the 1962 Missal/Rubric's allowed this. Does the 1962 Missal allow this?

With the permission of the bishop, yes.

The rules for pre-1951 Holy Week mandated that the ceremonies be done in the MORNING.
