The Altar of Repose at The Church of St. Luke in the Fields

Here is a quick cell phone picture I snapped at the Altar of Repose at St. Luke’s. (I hope I didn’t distract anyone. There were five or so of us there at 6 a.m.)

According to Manna for Episcopalians: “The custom of spending an hour before an Altar of Repose with the Blessed Sacrament present arose from the desire of devoted Christians, the faithful, to give an affirmative answer to the sorrowful question of our Lord in Gethsemane, “Could you not stay awake with me one hour?”

Downtown at Trinity Wall Street, they are keeping vigil online and through Twitter.
