Good Friday as we all know is the day when Christians ob-serve the commemoration of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. And we also believe Jesus died on Good Friday. It was His death day. But Good Friday must not only remain a death day, it must be connected to Easter, which symbolises the loving response of the Father to the obedient Son and of Christ’s victory and power over death.
There have been questions from the faithful about the varied practices or forms of Adoration of the Cross on Good Friday. This discussion will hope to bring about better understanding and appreciation of the liturgy on the day we commemorate Christ's death on the Cross for us.
The Vigil Mass of Holy Saturday is the culmination of the Church's liturgical calendar having come through the season of Lent and Holy Week. The Church recalls for herself this foundational moment in the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, her Lord and Master.
No matter what your calling may be, you were created for sainthood. For holiness. For perfect communion with God, and with others. Don’t be discouraged if you’re still trying to figure out God’s plan for your life. Simply stand still, and let Him move.
Although we recall the mystery of the Eucharist at every liturgy, the feast of Corpus Christi uniquely refocuses our vision. It reminds us all of our poverty and neediness. Spiritually, we cannot live without the nourishment of Christ. And it is by being fed with the Word of God in both the Scriptures and in the Sacrament that we receive life.
