Today is Good Friday, the Christian holiday that commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ at Calvary before his resurrection three days later on Easter. It is a solemn holiday for Christians, as it also commemorates the betrayal and death of Jesus at the hands of his disciples, most notably Judas. The Gospel passages that reference the crucifixion of Jesus are Matthew 27:27-28:8; Mark 15:16-16:19; Luke 23:26-24:35; and John 19:16-20:30. In the Gospel of John, it states, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
It is a day for quiet and reflection.
At St Ursula’s we had two services today known as the waiting at the Cross.
Wishing you a blessed and peaceful Easter time.
