The Church celebrates Bridegroom Matins only on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week. This morning service commemorates the days of the earthly life of Christ and His teachings of watchfulness to His disciples before His voluntary passion.
The Icon of Christ the Bridegroom is venerated during Holy Week. The icon reveals Christ enduring the marks of His mockery and suffering before His crucifixion and yet preparing the way for the marriage feast in His kingdom. The readings and hymns of Bridegroom Matins rouse the heart to conversion and vigilance for the coming of the Bridegroom and offer strength to His Bride the Church as we journey with Him in His passion.
