“Through his suffering, my servant shall justify many.”
Spend some quiet time before a crucifix. What do you want to say to the people around you?
The Easter Triduum are three days that precede Easter Sunday. Starting with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on the evening of Holy Thursday, continuing through the Good Friday service, and concluding with the start of the Easter Vigil on the evening of Holy Saturday, the Easter Triduum marks the most significant events of Holy Week (also known as Passiontide).
Jesus made for us, and helps us to understand and admire the life he lived. This period shows us how Jesus loved every human being no matter where they came from or who they were.
So what exactly is Good Friday?
Good Friday commemorates the Passion and Death of our Lord Jesus Christ on the Cross and it is believed to be the day Jesus Christ was crucified. Which begs the question why do we call such a day Good? Christians call this day Good Friday because it is believed to be the day Jesus sacrificed himself for all mankind’s sins. Ever thankful, Christians admire and worship Jesus for this and set time aside on Good Friday to appreciate Jesus for what he did for us all. It is believed that Jesus was sacrificed in the year 33 AD but some sources claim 34 AD.
