In the unique liturgical tradition of the Milanese Church, Fridays during Lent – by analogy to Good Friday – are aliturgical days, in which the Eucharist is not celebrated and Holy Communion is not given. This particularity, in which the Ambrosian Liturgy is more similar to that of Eastern ones, is a sign of a more intimate participation in the Paschal Mystery and of a more intense wait for the Sunday Eucharist.

Alongside the community celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours and the prolonged listening to the Words of God, the adoration of the Relic of the Holy Cross is also proposed and the devout act of the Via Crucis (Stations of the Cross).

It is possible to follow Vespers and the Lenten Catechesis (5.30pm) in streaming on this Site (www.duomomilano.it) from the YouTube channel Duomo Milano Tv.
