Below is the chant for the classic hymn for this part of Lent, ‘Vexilla Regis’, or ‘The Royal Banners forward go, the Cross shines forth in mystic glow …’ We begin it at First Vespers of the Sunday and continue it into Holy Week. It is a corporate journey of the Church, as well as a deeply personal one for each soul who desires a deeper communion with the Lord. The Church turns, as a body, saying to herself, ‘Behold, we go up to Jerusalem’.

May you find this Passiontide to be a blessing and a grace, as you seek to enter more deeply into the central mysteries of the Faith, and may you know the closeness of our Lord in all.
