Destroying the barriers of hell …


R. Our Shepherd is gone from us, he who is the Fountain of living water: and at his departure the sun was darkened * That evil one who took captive our first parent is also taken into captivity, in that today our our Saviour hath broken the gates of death and burst thereof the bars asunder.

V. He hath destroyed the barriers of hell, and overthrown him that had the power of death. That evil one who took captive our first parent is also taken into captivity, in that today our our Saviour hath broken the gates of death and burst thereof the bars asunder.

~ Response iv, for Tenebrae of Holy Saturday, Anglican Breviary.
