Good Friday

What's so good about Good Friday?

  1. It was our infirmities that Jesus bore our sufferings that he endured
  2. Jesus was pierced for our offenses
  3. Jesus was crushed for our sins
  4. Upon Jesus was the chastisement that makes us whole
  5. By Jesus' stripes were we healed
  6. Jesus was smitten by the sins of His people
  7. He gave His life as an offering for our sin
  8. The will of the Lord was accomplished through Him
  9. Through Jesus' suffering, He justified many and our guilt He bore
  10. Jesus surrendered Himself to death and won pardon for our offenses
Where can the weak find a place of firm security and peace, except in the wounds of the Savior? (St. Bernard of Clairvaux)

Never let the thought of Jesus leave your mind but meditate constantly on the mysteries of the Cross and the anguish of His Mother as she stood beneath the cross. (St. Clare of Assisi)

Jesus loved us so much he opened His arms wide and saved us from our sins.

Come, Let Us Worship!
