regarding
THE MEANING OF TENEBRAE.

Q. 1. What is the meaning of Tenebrae?

A. 1. "Tenebrae" is a Latin word that means 'shadows' or 'darkness.' It is a Christian religious service celebrated by the Western Church during the Holy Week.

The term most likely came from the fact that the lights (candles) are gradually extinguished in the course of the ceremony and all depart in darkness and silence.

Every word of Tenebrae is from the Holy Scriptures. It is celebrated in the Church beginning at 8:00 P.M.
