The Three Hours' Agony, or Tre Ore
The Three Hours' Agony, or Tre Ore, is a liturgical service held on Good Friday from noon until 3 o'clock to commemorate the Passion of Christ. Specifically, it refers to the three hours that Jesus hung on the Cross and includes a series of homilies on the seven last words spoken by Christ. Bishop Barron was invited by Timothy Cardinal Dolan in 2012 to preside over the Tre Ore service at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York, and the content of his presentation is featured here.
