Good Friday

Today’s Readings:  Isaiah 52:13-53:12; Psalm 31:2, 6, 12-13, 15-17, 25; Hebrews 4:14-16; 5:7-9;  John 18:1-19:42

Remember your mercies, O Lord,
and with your eternal protection sanctify your servants,
for whom Christ your Son,
by the shedding of his Blood,
established the Paschal Mystery,
Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.  Amen.

This is the wood of the cross, on which hung the Savior of the world!
O Come, let us adore.

This is a very special day – a day to deepen our intimacy with our Lord.
It is a day to pray and reflect Way of the Cross.
It is a day of fasting and abstinence, so that we be more aware and open of God’s great love for each one of us.
“…for there is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”
It is a day to stand before the cross as one of those friends – a sinner, yet forgiven. 
It is also a day to reflect on that God’s Great Love for each one of us, so that we, in turn, may love, forgive and pray for those whom we have a hard time loving and forgiving.

“My people, what have I done to you? 
How have I offended you?  Answer me.” 

I continue to pray for each one of you by name in my daily prayers.  The Sisters also pray for you daily!  Please know that we do not pray that you will enter with us 
(– although I personally would love that! 😉) 
We pray with and for women who are discerning their life vocation, and then allow the Holy Spirit to guide you to God’s dream for you 
– for only God knows where you can best live your Baptismal call to a holy life.
