During the Lent in the St. Francis of Assisi's church in Krakow there is a traditional devotion organized by the Franciscans and the Fraternity of God's Passion. This unusual fraternity was established over 400 years ago.
During this celebration the special Lenten Devotion is sang by the priests. The Fraternity responds in Latin - ‘Memento homo mori’ – Remember man about the death. Following is the Eucharistic procession with the Franciscans singing ‘Stabat Mater Dolorosa’ (in Latin). The service is finished with the traditional polish Lenten office - Gorzkie Zale – Lamentations.
