Great Three Days of Easter – Good Friday

Christ Carrying the Cross, El Greco (1580)On Good Friday Jesus Christ gave his life for us. Though innocent, by allowing himself to be a scapegoat he showed the depth of his love. His example of loving service shows us how we are to live too. A day of fasting and abstinence, in eager anticipation of Easter.

But if we just felt sad that our sin put him on the cross, then we would be missing the point. Good Friday is not meant to make us feel bad. On ‘Good’Friday we remember that we are sinners, but we also glory in the victory that Christ won over sin and death, to set us free. This is not a passion play, and we gather knowing that Christ rose from the dead. So even on Good Friday we rejoice in the triumph of good over evil.
