GOOD FRIDAY – Fast and Abstinence …

WHY GOOD FRIDAY IS “GOOD”

In the acute pain of the Suffering Servant we already hear the triumphant cry of the Risen Lord.  Christ on the cross is the King of the new people ransomed from the burden of sin and death.  However twisted and confused the course of history may appear, we know that, by walking in the footsteps of the Crucified Nazarene, we shall attain the goal.  Amid the conflicts of a world often dominated by selfishness and hatred, we, as believers, are called to proclaim the victory of Love.  Today, Good Friday, we testify to the victory of Christ Crucified …
Yes, we adore you, Lord, lifted up upon the cross between heaven and earth, the sole Mediator of our salvation.  Your cross is the banner of our victory1

John Paul II – Way of the Cross at the Coliseum, March 29, 2002 (Good Friday)
