Noon Preaching the Cross – Fr Richard Coles

On Good Friday Fr Richard Coles, Curate, explores some of the Passion Psalms of the Icelandic priest-poet Hallgrimur Petursson. The Passion Psalms, “The history of the pain and death of our Lord, Jesus Christ, with special learning, reminding, and consoling articles, prayers and praises, in psalms and songs with misc. notes, compiled and written in the year 1659”, are a collection of fifty hymns to be sung and said, one each working day, during Lent. The life of Hallgrimur Petursson, son of a bell ringer, nephew of a bishop, runaway, anti-slaver and leper, was as vivid as his master piece, and his Passion Psalms are still read daily in Lent in Iceland, nowadays on the national radio network. Discover more about them, about him, and about how we might focus on the climactic events of Christ’s life and death at the  Preaching of the Passion at noon on Good Friday
