The Stripping of the Altar (7:00 p.m.) This is the night in which our Lord was betrayed. After He had instituted the Sacrament of His body and blood, He and the eleven disciples went out to the Garden of Gethsemane, where He knew Judas would come to set in motion the events leading to His crucifixion. All the appointments in the chancel are symbols related to our Lord, the light of the world, the Word of God in the flesh. This evening they are stripped from the altar—which represents Jesus Himself—just as He was struck, humiliated, tortured, and taken to the cross.
