Why is it that we break up the parts of thok te ti gom based on the week, like on sunday to tuesday its just "pachois isos pieckristos thok te ti gom..." and then as the days continue we add more words. why is this, why dont we say the whole thing at once. thank you and God Bless You
Beginning at the Eleventh Hour of Wednesday, we add "my Good Savior" to the praise, strongly attesting that Christ's suffering for our salvation began when the high priests and the elders were consulting the arrest of Jesus and plotting His death. Beginning at the vigil of Friday, and continuing throughout the day, we add "my salvation" to the praise, emphasizing that the Church recognizes that salvation is fulfilled on the Cross.
Hope that helps.
