Jesus is laid in the tomb.

We adore you O Christ, and we praise you.

Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world.

They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it with the spices in linen cloths, following the Jewish burial custom. At the place where he had been crucified there was a garden, and in this garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been buried. Since it was the Jewish day of preparation and the tomb was near at hand, they laid Jesus there.
John 19:40-42

Lord Jesus, as your mortal life ends, and your work is accomplished, our life in you, and your work in and through us begins. Let us be the signs and instruments of your Life and Kingdom, and let your love shine through us to all. In us you are still healing, teaching and suffering to bring your purpose to completion. In the darkness of the tomb the light of your promise and power is burning, awaiting the dawn of the new life of Grace.

"I am the resurrection and the life!, says Jesus "The person who believes in me will never die".
John 11:25

I love you Jesus, my love, above all things. I repent with my whole heart of having offended you. Never permit me to separate myself from you again. Grant that I may love you always, and then do with me what you will.
