Good Friday

On the Friday of the Lord's Passion (Good Friday) the Church commemorates the death of Jesus Christ on the Cross for the sins of all mankind, at the same time the Passover lamb was being killed and prepared for consumption among the Jewish people. On this day the Church does not celebrate Mass. The main altar remains completely bare, and the Tabernacle is empty. It is at the 3 o'clock hour on Good Friday that Jesus expired on the Cross, His Divine Mercy being poured out on the whole world. At this hour the Christian faithful should observe a solemn and prayerful silence in memory of the hour in which our salvation was won at so great a price.


†Saint Quote
"As they were looking on, so we too gaze on his wounds as he hangs. We see his blood as he dies. We see the price offered by the redeemer, touch the scars of his resurrection. He bows his head, as if to kiss you. His heart is made bare open, as it were, in love to you. His arms are extended that he may embrace you. His whole body is displayed for your redemption. Ponder how great these things are. Let all this be rightly weighed in your mind: as he was once fixed to the cross in every part of his body for you, so he may now be fixed in every part of your soul."
–St. Augustine of Hippo

†Today's Meditation
"Jesus Christ did not think the sovereign beatitude and glory of Heaven too dearly purchased at the price of unspeakable tortures, and by suffering His sacred flesh to be mangled by nails, thorns, and scourges. Great indeed must be the value of that which cost the Son of God so dear! And yet we esteem it so little, as to be even ready to renounce our claim to it, as, in fact, so many of us do, for the sake of some wretched pleasure or despicable interest! Ye blind and deluded children of men, contemplate the Wounds of your Crucified God, and see in what manner the gates of the kingdom of glory have been opened to you! See what it has cost Him to place you in possession of it, and understand, if possible, how infinite a benefit was bestowed upon you by the Son of God when He purchased for you Heaven, which you had lost by sin! … Enter in spirit into these sacred Wounds, and you will comprehend the value and sublimity of that eternal felicity which they have acquired for you, and you will learn to detach your heart from the earth and from creatures, so as to place all your affections and desires upon Heaven."
—Fr. Ignatius of the Side of Christ, p. 226-227

An Excerpt From
The School of Jesus Crucified

†Daily Verse
"Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
–Philippians 2:5-11

St. John Baptist de la Salle

St. John Baptist de la Salle (1651-1719) was born in Rheims, France, to a noble family. He was pious and smart, and his parents took great care over his moral and intellectual training. He entered seminary and was ordained at the age of twenty-seven. In St. John Baptist's era, only the noble and wealthy classes had access to a good education. His work among the poor led him to establish a home and school for rough and illiterate orphaned boys. The institution was successful and soon a second was established. St. John Baptist then dedicated his life to the cause of education, giving his wealth to the poor and resigning his respectable position as canon at Rheims. He recruited and trained men to teach in free schools he founded for the poor, which grew into a brotherhood of young men who were attracted to a life of service in teaching and catechesis. This became the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, or Christian Brothers. They took vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, but not Holy Orders. The Christian Brothers expanded, and in many parts of France parish priests sent young men to be trained by St. John Baptist to serve as schoolmasters in their villages. Although he was initially opposed in his innovative work, both inside and outside the Church, St. John Baptist's foundations and methods soon became the standard for education in France and spread internationally. St. John Baptist de la Salle is the patron of schoolteachers. His feast day is April 7th.


Good Friday of the Lord's Passion

Reading I Is 52:13—53:12

See, my servant shall prosper,

he shall be raised high and greatly exalted.
Even as many were amazed at him --

so marred was his look beyond human semblance

and his appearance beyond that of the sons of man--
so shall he startle many nations,

because of him kings shall stand speechless;
for those who have not been told shall see,

those who have not heard shall ponder it.
Who would believe what we have heard?

To whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
He grew up like a sapling before him,

like a shoot from the parched earth;
there was in him no stately bearing to make us look at him,

nor appearance that would attract us to him.
He was spurned and avoided by people,

a man of suffering, accustomed to infirmity,
one of those from whom people hide their faces,

spurned, and we held him in no esteem.
Yet it was our infirmities that he bore,

our sufferings that he endured,
while we thought of him as stricken,

as one smitten by God and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our offenses,

crushed for our sins;
upon him was the chastisement that makes us whole,

by his stripes we were healed.
We had all gone astray like sheep,

each following his own way;
but the LORD laid upon him

the guilt of us all.
Though he was harshly treated, he submitted

and opened not his mouth;
like a lamb led to the slaughter

or a sheep before the shearers,

he was silent and opened not his mouth.
Oppressed and condemned, he was taken away,

and who would have thought any more of his destiny?
When he was cut off from the land of the living,

and smitten for the sin of his people,
a grave was assigned him among the wicked

and a burial place with evildoers,
though he had done no wrong

nor spoken any falsehood.
But the LORD was pleased

to crush him in infirmity.
If he gives his life as an offering for sin,

he shall see his descendants in a long life,

and the will of the LORD shall be accomplished through him.
Because of his affliction

he shall see the light in fullness of days;
through his suffering, my servant shall justify many,

and their guilt he shall bear.
Therefore I will give him his portion among the great,

and he shall divide the spoils with the mighty,
because he surrendered himself to death

and was counted among the wicked;
and he shall take away the sins of many,

and win pardon for their offenses.

Responsorial Psalm 31:2, 6, 12-13, 15-16, 17, 25

R. (Lk 23:46) Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
In you, O LORD, I take refuge;

let me never be put to shame.
In your justice rescue me.
Into your hands I commend my spirit;

you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.
R. Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
For all my foes I am an object of reproach,

a laughingstock to my neighbors, and a dread to my friends;

they who see me abroad flee from me.
I am forgotten like the unremembered dead;

I am like a dish that is broken.
R. Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
But my trust is in you, O LORD;

I say, "You are my God.
In your hands is my destiny; rescue me

from the clutches of my enemies and my persecutors."
R. Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
Let your face shine upon your servant;

save me in your kindness.
Take courage and be stouthearted,

all you who hope in the LORD.
R. Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

Reading II Heb 4:14-16; 5:7-9

Brothers and sisters:
Since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens,
Jesus, the Son of God,
let us hold fast to our confession.
For we do not have a high priest
who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses,
but one who has similarly been tested in every way,
yet without sin.
So let us confidently approach the throne of grace
to receive mercy and to find grace for timely help.
In the days when Christ was in the flesh,
he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears
to the one who was able to save him from death,
and he was heard because of his reverence.
Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered;
and when he was made perfect,
he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.

Verse Before the Gospel Phil 2:8-9

Christ became obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross.
Because of this, God greatly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name which is above every other name.

Gospel Jn 18:1—19:42

Jesus went out with his disciples across the Kidron valley
to where there was a garden,
into which he and his disciples entered.
Judas his betrayer also knew the place,
because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.
So Judas got a band of soldiers and guards
from the chief priests and the Pharisees
and went there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.
Jesus, knowing everything that was going to happen to him,
went out and said to them, "Whom are you looking for?"
They answered him, "Jesus the Nazorean."
He said to them, "I AM."
Judas his betrayer was also with them.
When he said to them, "I AM, "
they turned away and fell to the ground.
So he again asked them,
"Whom are you looking for?"
They said, "Jesus the Nazorean."
Jesus answered,
"I told you that I AM.
So if you are looking for me, let these men go."
This was to fulfill what he had said,
"I have not lost any of those you gave me."
Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it,
struck the high priest's slave, and cut off his right ear.
The slave's name was Malchus.
Jesus said to Peter,
"Put your sword into its scabbard.
Shall I not drink the cup that the Father gave me?"
So the band of soldiers, the tribune, and the Jewish guards seized Jesus,
bound him, and brought him to Annas first.
He was the father-in-law of Caiaphas,
who was high priest that year.
It was Caiaphas who had counseled the Jews
that it was better that one man should die rather than the people.
Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus.
Now the other disciple was known to the high priest,
and he entered the courtyard of the high priest with Jesus.
But Peter stood at the gate outside.
So the other disciple, the acquaintance of the high priest,
went out and spoke to the gatekeeper and brought Peter in.
Then the maid who was the gatekeeper said to Peter,
"You are not one of this man's disciples, are you?"
He said, "I am not."
Now the slaves and the guards were standing around a charcoal fire
that they had made, because it was cold,
and were warming themselves.
Peter was also standing there keeping warm.
The high priest questioned Jesus
about his disciples and about his doctrine.
Jesus answered him,
"I have spoken publicly to the world.
I have always taught in a synagogue
or in the temple area where all the Jews gather,
and in secret I have said nothing. Why ask me?
Ask those who heard me what I said to them.
They know what I said."
When he had said this,
one of the temple guards standing there struck Jesus and said,
"Is this the way you answer the high priest?"
Jesus answered him,
"If I have spoken wrongly, testify to the wrong;
but if I have spoken rightly, why do you strike me?"
Then Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.
Now Simon Peter was standing there keeping warm.
And they said to him,
"You are not one of his disciples, are you?"
He denied it and said,
"I am not."
One of the slaves of the high priest,
a relative of the one whose ear Peter had cut off, said,
"Didn't I see you in the garden with him?"
Again Peter denied it.
And immediately the cock crowed.
Then they brought Jesus from Caiaphas to the praetorium.
It was morning.
And they themselves did not enter the praetorium,
in order not to be defiled so that they could eat the Passover.
So Pilate came out to them and said,
"What charge do you bring against this man?"
They answered and said to him,
"If he were not a criminal,
we would not have handed him over to you."
At this, Pilate said to them,
"Take him yourselves, and judge him according to your law."
The Jews answered him,
"We do not have the right to execute anyone,"
in order that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled
that he said indicating the kind of death he would die.
So Pilate went back into the praetorium
and summoned Jesus and said to him,
"Are you the King of the Jews?"
Jesus answered,
"Do you say this on your own
or have others told you about me?"
Pilate answered,
"I am not a Jew, am I?
Your own nation and the chief priests handed you over to me.
What have you done?"
Jesus answered,
"My kingdom does not belong to this world.
If my kingdom did belong to this world,
my attendants would be fighting
to keep me from being handed over to the Jews.
But as it is, my kingdom is not here."
So Pilate said to him,
"Then you are a king?"
Jesus answered,
"You say I am a king.
For this I was born and for this I came into the world,
to testify to the truth.
Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice."
Pilate said to him, "What is truth?"
When he had said this,
he again went out to the Jews and said to them,
"I find no guilt in him.
But you have a custom that I release one prisoner to you at Passover.
Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?"
They cried out again,
"Not this one but Barabbas!"
Now Barabbas was a revolutionary.
Then Pilate took Jesus and had him scourged.
And the soldiers wove a crown out of thorns and placed it on his head,
and clothed him in a purple cloak,
and they came to him and said,
"Hail, King of the Jews!"
And they struck him repeatedly.
Once more Pilate went out and said to them,
"Look, I am bringing him out to you,
so that you may know that I find no guilt in him."
So Jesus came out,
wearing the crown of thorns and the purple cloak.
And he said to them, "Behold, the man!"
When the chief priests and the guards saw him they cried out,
"Crucify him, crucify him!"
Pilate said to them,
"Take him yourselves and crucify him.
I find no guilt in him."
The Jews answered,
"We have a law, and according to that law he ought to die,
because he made himself the Son of God."
Now when Pilate heard this statement,
he became even more afraid,
and went back into the praetorium and said to Jesus,
"Where are you from?"
Jesus did not answer him.
So Pilate said to him,
"Do you not speak to me?
Do you not know that I have power to release you
and I have power to crucify you?"
Jesus answered him,
"You would have no power over me
if it had not been given to you from above.
For this reason the one who handed me over to you
has the greater sin."
Consequently, Pilate tried to release him; but the Jews cried out,
"If you release him, you are not a Friend of Caesar.
Everyone who makes himself a king opposes Caesar."
When Pilate heard these words he brought Jesus out
and seated him on the judge's bench
in the place called Stone Pavement, in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
It was preparation day for Passover, and it was about noon.
And he said to the Jews,
"Behold, your king!"
They cried out,
"Take him away, take him away! Crucify him!"
Pilate said to them,
"Shall I crucify your king?"
The chief priests answered,
"We have no king but Caesar."
Then he handed him over to them to be crucified.
So they took Jesus, and, carrying the cross himself,
he went out to what is called the Place of the Skull,
in Hebrew, Golgotha.
There they crucified him, and with him two others,
one on either side, with Jesus in the middle.
Pilate also had an inscription written and put on the cross.
It read,
"Jesus the Nazorean, the King of the Jews."
Now many of the Jews read this inscription,
because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city;
and it was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek.
So the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate,
"Do not write 'The King of the Jews,'
but that he said, 'I am the King of the Jews'."
Pilate answered,
"What I have written, I have written."
When the soldiers had crucified Jesus,
they took his clothes and divided them into four shares,
a share for each soldier.
They also took his tunic, but the tunic was seamless,
woven in one piece from the top down.
So they said to one another,
"Let's not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it will be, "
in order that the passage of Scripture might be fulfilled that says:

They divided my garments among them,

and for my vesture they cast lots.
This is what the soldiers did.
Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother
and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas,
and Mary of Magdala.
When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved
he said to his mother, "Woman, behold, your son."
Then he said to the disciple,
"Behold, your mother."
And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.
After this, aware that everything was now finished,
in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled,
Jesus said, "I thirst."
There was a vessel filled with common wine.
So they put a sponge soaked in wine on a sprig of hyssop
and put it up to his mouth.
When Jesus had taken the wine, he said,
"It is finished."
And bowing his head, he handed over the spirit.

Here all kneel and pause for a short time.
Now since it was preparation day,
in order that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath,
for the sabbath day of that week was a solemn one,
the Jews asked Pilate that their legs be broken
and that they be taken down.
So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first
and then of the other one who was crucified with Jesus.
But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead,
they did not break his legs,
but one soldier thrust his lance into his side,
and immediately blood and water flowed out.
An eyewitness has testified, and his testimony is true;
he knows that he is speaking the truth,
so that you also may come to believe.
For this happened so that the Scripture passage might be fulfilled:

Not a bone of it will be broken.
And again another passage says:

They will look upon him whom they have pierced.
After this, Joseph of Arimathea,
secretly a disciple of Jesus for fear of the Jews,
asked Pilate if he could remove the body of Jesus.
And Pilate permitted it.
So he came and took his body.
Nicodemus, the one who had first come to him at night,
also came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes
weighing about one hundred pounds.
They took the body of Jesus
and bound it with burial cloths along with the spices,
according to the Jewish burial custom.
Now in the place where he had been crucified there was a garden,
and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had yet been buried.
So they laid Jesus there because of the Jewish preparation day;
for the tomb was close by.


Daily Meditation: John 18:1–19:42

Behold, your king. (John 19:14)

Pontius Pilate was mocking Jesus when he said, "Behold, your king" (John 19:14). But as believers in Jesus, these words can move our hearts. So let's look upon our King. Let's turn our eyes and our hearts toward Jesus and behold him, bruised and beaten, crowned with thorns. Let's take our place at the foot of the cross and offer him our thanks and praise.

"Humble King, I behold you, suffering in silence. You never cry out to defend yourself; you don't respond in anger to your tormentors. You give your "back to those who beat" you; you do not hide your face "from insults and spitting" (Isaiah 50:6). You extend your hands to those who crucify you. You give yourself up freely for those who have rejected you. For me. Thank you for enduring mocking and cruelty at the hands of sinful men. I adore you, Jesus, my King.

"Merciful King, I behold you wounded, hanging upon a cross. Instead of a crown of gold, you wear a crown of thorns. Your precious blood flows down from your head, your hands, your feet. You are suffering unjustly, yet you pray, "Father, forgive them, they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34). Thank you for your mercy, O Lamb of God! You take away the sins of the world—even mine. You forgive me, even though I do not deserve it. I adore you, Jesus, my King.

"Triumphant King, I behold you, faithful to the end. No one takes your life from you—you have the power 'to lay it down' and the 'power to take it up again' (John 10:18). With your dying breath, you give us your Mother as our own (19:27). You proclaim, "It is finished" and hand over your spirit, trusting your Father to raise you up (19:30). Thank you, Jesus, for conquering death by your own death so that we might live. With the whole Church, I now sit in silent awe and wait in eager expectation for you to rise from the grave. I adore you, Jesus, my King.

"Jesus, my King, it is right to praise you! I adore you, Lord, for by your cross and resurrection, you have set us free."

Isaiah 52:13–53:12
Psalm 31:2, 6, 12-13, 15-17, 25

From today's 1st Holy Scripture:
"See, my servant shall prosper, he shall be raised high and greatly exalted. Even as many were amazed at him --
so marred was his look beyond human semblance and his appearance beyond that of the sons of man-..."

Have you ever seen someone so beat up that you couldn't recognize them anymore?

What does that say about the Lord we fail to recognize every day of our lives? Is He not distinguishable because we do not care? Is He so hard to see because we just haven't wanted to see Him really? I don't know who is hearing this or reading this, so I can fairly say, as I tell my students that I can only speak from a first person perspective and testimony, to use a guinea pig, a lab rat, a sorry excuse for a man as an example...myself. Because a true man, is a man. The Man is God, and this is the Son of Man who we are speaking of. I fail to recognize evil, and what's worse? I fail to recognize God. How? Temptations lure you, and you fail to see the monster luring you in. God attempts to lure you with humility, a beat up and ugly life style we make of a religious person...yet the lure brings one to the most splendid and beautiful and loving King of the Universe. How backwards we live! How can we make a return with all our lives? Who beats up our Lord? Our sins beat up the Lord. The sins you committed yesterday, the sins you commit today, and the sins you will commit tomorrow will heap beatings on our Lord, because He still lives today, in those you hate, in those you despise, in those you probably don't hate, but don't remember, and the forgotten wilt and die on the road side, this road, this path, this pilgrimage of life. So let's not think of the "evil" people out there, but think of your own failures to be the holy saint you were created to be.
The world tells you not to be a saint, but God tells you to be perfect. And He wouldn't tell you to do something you are not able to do...give yourself totally.


We pray today:
"In you, O LORD, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame. In your justice rescue me.
Into your hands I commend my spirit; you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God. Father, into your hands I commend my spirit."

What does faith look like? It looks like true love. It looks like trust. That's because that is what it is...Jesus shows us how to have faith. He has shown us the Way! The Truth! And the Faith! And this is the Life!


In the Gospel today we heard:

"Pilate said to them, "Shall I crucify your king?"
The chief priests answered, "We have no king but Caesar."

Every day, for months, we are praying a Flame of Love prayer for the world to turn to Jesus the Christ as King. HE is already King, but we fail to see Him as King. What is keeping us from seeing Him as King? Did we not just talk about how hard it is to recognize Him? We fail to recognize Him, and so we fail to recognize our King. And just because you do not recognize Him doesn't make Him less of a King. You can hate or say you don't have a leader, or authority over you, but that doesn't make the statement true. The authority has powers over you regardless. You may escape worldly authorities, but you will never escape from God. And this, is actually Good News. For the worst rebel in the world...still has hope in God, because even if the world forgets that rebel...God doesn't not. Yet there is a place in eternity for those who do not wish to have God as their love or leader, and it is a place of flames and torment, where others become their leaders, and even then...God is the ultimate above all, you just picked something listen to. And the lower things go, the less life there is.

From Bishop Barron Today:
"Friends, today's Gospel is John's wonderful narrative of Christ's Passion.
On the cross, Jesus entered into close quarters with sin (because that's where we sinners are found) and allowed the heat and fury of sin to destroy him, even as he protected us.
We can see, with special clarity, why the first Christians associated the crucified Jesus with the suffering servant of Isaiah. By enduring the pain of the cross, Jesus did indeed bear our sins; by his stripes we were indeed healed.
And this is why the sacrificial death of Jesus is pleasing to the Father. The Father sent his Son into godforsakenness, into the morass of sin and death, not because he delighted in seeing his Son suffer, but rather because he wanted his Son to bring the divine light to the darkest place.
It is not the agony of the Son in itself that pleases his Father, but rather the Son's willing obedience in offering his body in sacrifice in order to take away the sin of the world. St. Anselm said that the death of the Son reestablished the right relationship between divinity and humanity." end quote.
. . . .
In the Gospel we hear:
"They will look upon him whom they have pierced."
This torment that our Lord and our God endures on the cross exposes the ugliness of the world, and the beauty of God's true love.
A serpent on a pole was raised for all those who complain against God so that the serpents would stop killing them. God punishes? If I never punish my kids in any way, they will turn into venomous serpents. I suffer in my life for poor decisions. Our Lord allows that too. I suffer in my life because of sin. God allows that too. Jesus didn't have to suffer. God doesn't have to suffer. Yet He did. And yet God our Father suffers. Boy my dad suffered on earth...yes physically in the end, but he suffered mostly because of the sins of his children. The heartaches. The poor decisions. And he had to contend with his own sins too. Yet he poured himself out lavishing all he know how to love on them and provide for the end. I could only hope so many that don't have dads, to have experienced a loving father's love. Boy he was known for his big heart. And doctors said he had an enlarged heart. But he was here for a reason. He had died earlier in life in an accident, and was given a second chance after experiencing an out of body experience seeing his lifeless body on the ground saying "everybody is going to think that is me! But that is not me!". God heard his prayers and thoughts. He came back to life and seemed invincible from that point out.

That body on the cross though. Is that God's body? God comes in many ways, and often in mysterious ways into our lives.
The mystery of God makes Him most amazing.

A reflection today made me read Corinthians: "For since in the wisdom of God the world did not come to know God through wisdom, it was the will of God through the foolishness of the proclamation to save those who have faith. . . For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.'

We saw God hung on the cross, weak, bleeding to death, disfigured, beat up, tortured, and left to die little by little in great suffering. And all of that proved only one thing...that He is greater than all of us.
He is stronger, because who else can have their hearts pierced with a lance, bleed to death...and still come back to conquer the world?

Only God can.
And He has.
And He has come to live among us.
And this mystery is so amazing.
And my eyes fill with water as I write.
Because I have seen My Father in Heaven dying on a cross. Not my earthly dad, but Jesus, in a vision during the 3pm Divine Mercy prayer many years before.
There He was, in total darkness, disfigured, and struggling to breath, but with no complaint. My internal being knew that this being on the cross was our true Father. And I live today to tell you, that you are to be comforted.

He is dying of love for you. He is dying to be with you. He is anxious to die so death will be no more! What an amazing gift from the cross..from one heart to another, blood and water, life and spirit, soul to soul, where everything is made perfect....into Himself.

Let's pray:
Lord I am not worthy to even look at You. My head belongs face down in the dirt before You on the cross. I want to love You! Help us Love YOU truly!!


Random Bible Verse 1
Romans 6:14

"For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace."

Let us not forget:
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." 1st Corinthians.

God Bless you, let us bless God, and make it a Good Friday
