The second day of the Paschal Triduum. Good Friday.
Jesus is true God and true Man. He ransomed us from death. He showed us how to love. He showed us how to suffer. He showed us how to trust His Father.
Contemplate and meditate on His wounds. Graphically recall His Passion and His death. Contemplate on His Holy Face. Adore the Holy Cross.
There is no Mass, no celebration of the Sacraments except for Penance and the Anointing of the Sick.
Jesus is arrested; Peter denies Him three times; Pilate questions Jesus; Barabbas is chosen over Jesus; Jesus is scourged; Pilate questions Jesus; Jesus is sentenced to die on the Cross; Jesus dies.
Today we pray for the Holy Church, the Pope, the faithful, the catechumens, for unity of Christians, for the Jewish people, for those who do not believe in Christ, for those who do not believe in God, for those in public office, for those in tribulation and for ourselves.
