Good friday

Readings of the day:

Isaiah 52:13-53:12
Hebrews 4:14-16; 5:7-9
Psalm 31:2, 6, 12-13, 15-17, 25
John 18:1-19:42

Reflections:

There hang him, there hang on the cross the man who was bruised for humanity’s sake. There on the cross he called humanity to himself to share in his divine life. There he nailed our imperfection, to share in his perfection. There he shouldered the weight of our sins. There he emptied himself for the sake of everyone walking on the sands of earth. There he willed his thought of eternity with him, all that he was crucified of them. Not a thought of any was lost in his gaze.

One particular thing I like about isaiah’s reading of today is; ‘by his stripes we are healed.’ By the spill of his precious blood, the desert we thread blooms with precious greens.

Let us this day contemplate on the wounds on the skin of Jesus. Let us sit by the cross and meditate silently on the various moments of his passion. Let us appreciate all of this, and in this moment, may we never fail to give him thanks.

Thank you Jesus!

Peace and Love of Christ.
