In the '60s, I thought this emphasis on congregational singing was to encourage good Catholic hymns like "Immaculate Mary" and so forth … but after the Council, they threw them out, too!

CHOIR PRAYER (from CAMPION HYMNAL) happens after attendance is taken:

First Station: Jesus is Condemned to Death

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee,
Because by Thy Holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world.

Pilate, the time-serving politician, stepped forward on his sunlit portico. On his right stood Christ, the Just One who came to give His life for the redemption of many; on his left stood Barabbas, the wicked one, who had incited a revolt and taken a life. Pilate asked the mob to choose between the two: “Whether you will that I release unto you, Christ, or Barabbas”?

How would I have answered that question, had I been in the courtyard that Good Friday morning? I cannot escape answering by saying that the question belongs only to the past, for it is as actual now as ever. My conscience is the tribunal of Pilate. Daily, hourly, and every minute of the day, Christ comes before that tribunal, as virtue, honesty and purity. Barabbas comes as vice, dishonesty and uncleanness. As often as I choose to speak the uncharitable word, do the dishonest action, or consent to the evil thought, I say in so many words, “Release unto me, Barabbas,” and to choose Barabbas means to crucify Christ.

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

O Jesus, many times in my life I have preferred Barabbas to Thee. There is no way that I can undo that choice, but to make my way to Thy feet, and beg Thy forgiveness. But that is so humiliating, for Thou wearest the garment of a fool, and Thou bearest in Thy hand the reed sceptre of a mock king. It is so hard to do penance and admit that I am guilty! It is so hard to be seen with Thee, who art wearing Thy crown of thorns. It is hard! But let me see, Jesus, that it is harder to wear the crown of thorns!
