Good Friday


Good Friday, the day when we remember the passion and death of Jesus Christ. Today is a day when we don’t celebrate holy Mass but instead reflect on the passion of our Lord. After reading the long gospel it always amazes me that all of Jesus’ friends, His disciples, those who said that they would follow Him - no matter what - and those who were declaring their love for Him, were unable to stay with Him until the end. We read in the gospel today that “Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala.” Where was everybody else? Where were the disciples? Where were those whom Jesus miraculously healed and brought back to life? We don’t know. All we know is that they were not there, under Jesus’ cross. Because it is easy to declare our love for Jesus, to tell Him that we would never betray Him and will always follow Him, yet when the temptations and fears come across our lives, then we quickly forget about our promises made to the Lord. On this important and special day simply reflect if you in your life have enough faith and courage to stay with Jesus until the end?
