Good Friday…

Today is Good Friday. A solemn special day that commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus.

Images1_1 One should not waste the day by inserting the fact that Easter is just around the corner. Visions of Easter bunnies shouldn't dance in our heads. New Easter outfits don't seem appropriate on this day.

Let the cross have its way in your mind. Protestants, make room for the corpus. Catholics, venerate the crucifix more deeply.

Let death have its day. This was the day that Jesus died. Beyond that, you need not go.
