God's Sepulcher

In Poland (and also in Germany) after the Good Friday liturgy the Most Holy Sacrament is carried in the monstrance to the “God’s Grave”.  He remains there till the end of the Holy Saturday liturgy. Over Friday night and Saturday people visits churches for adoration to spend some time with Our Lord laying in the grave. Monstrance is covered with the white veil to symbolize a shroud.

Interesting. In most countries (including the Philippines, my country) adoration ends at midnight between Holy Thursday and Good Friday.
