Good Friday

Friends, don’t get in a hurry this Good Friday. We will celebrate the Resurrection soon enough. Let’s linger at the cross without “padding” it with reminders that “Sunday is coming.”

Instead, for six hours, from 9 to 3, gaze at the cross and the One suffering on it. Realize that he is hanging there for all of us, unworthy though we are. Realize he is hanging there for just one reason: love.

Save all the rest till later. For now, spend time at the foot of the cross.
