Today's Schedule - Friday March 29, 2013
FRIDAY OF THE PASSION OF THE LORD -
Jesus answered pilate,
"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."
Traditionally a day of sadness, spent in fasting and prayer.
We can prepare to begin the Good Friday celebration by reflecting upon ourselves laying there at the foot of the cross - Our feelings may not be consistent or even inspiring. Let us enter the liturgy on Good Friday in silence.
John's account of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ is the best way of praying today for all "who hold fast to our confession" of faith in Jesus as our personal and universal Savior.
"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.
