The Alleluia is not used throughout pre-Lent and Lent. The Hebrew word means ‘praise be to God’ - we restrain our jubilation and joyful praise of God during this most sacred time of preparation and during Our Lord’s Fasting, Temptation, Passion & Death. The Alleluia will then rise again as a symbol of Our Lord’s Resurrection from the dead on Easter morn.
1. Write the word Alleluia on a piece of paper. (This can be done in its musical form, image attached).
2. Place the Alleluia parchment in a box (coffin). Otherwise in some plastic to ensure it does not erode.
3. Bury the Alleluia coffin in the ground.
4. Place a wooden cross about the Alleluia grave and write: "Hic Jacet Alleluia" (Here lies the Alleluia).
5. Dig up the Alleluia on Easter Sunday and rejoice.
