Guards by the Sepulcher

In some churches in Poland the Sepulcher is guarded by the Firefighters or Police over Good Friday night and Saturday. During the ‘Resurrection’ ceremony these guards fall on the floor, as did the guards by the Resurrection of Our Lord.

Ant. Prae timore autem ejus * exterriti sunt custodes, et facti sunt velut mortui, alleluia.
Ant. And for fear of him * the guards were struck with terror and became as dead men, alleluia.
