                  Thought of the week:

Good Friday

Used in this context, the word ‘Good’ carries the same meaning as the original Old English word, in that it means holy. Thus, this day is also referred to as Holy Friday.

Good Friday is the second day of the Easter Triduum and the day that Christians throughout the world commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus. According to Mark 15:42 Jesus died “on the day of preparation, the day before the sabbath.” The Hebrew Sabbath is celebrated on Saturday. Therefore the Friday before Easter (the day that we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead) is traditionally marked as the day Jesus died on the cross.

It is a day of fasting and abstinence.

Today we meditate on the saving Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ and it is a sombre  time of quiet reflection.

This particular Good Friday, while we maintain physical distancing during the pandemic, we are unable to physically meet together in church . . . but let’s remain aware of each other, and pray for each other.

Perhaps at 3pm,  when traditionally the Good Friday Service begins, you could read the scripture for the day and have a private veneration of the cross.

O Mary,
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain,             keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of all Peoples
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection.

Amen.

 
Let us ask Our Lady of Lourdes to intercede for us.
