Holy Friday - Lamentations

On Holy Friday, we commemorate the Theotokos' lamentation over the death of Christ on the Cross, and His being taken down from the Cross, His anointing with aromatic spices and being wrapped in a clean linen cloth, and His being laid in a new tomb. As part of our commemoration, we carry the representation of His body in the form of the Epitaphion, and lay it to rest on a table which symbolizes the tomb.
