amy_color-extra.jpgT0day is Good Friday. It is odd that they call it good. That word good brings connotations of a happy time, like a birthday or a day at the beach. What it really means is that today is a day where we remember Jesus Christ, dead and buried for us, for the forgiveness of our sins, both past, present and future. Today should not be a day of celebration, but a day of mourning. Celebration comes on Sunday, but I hope that you will take time today, regardless of your beliefs to mourn the death of a good man who willingly went to the cross to pay the penalty for your and my sins. Thank you Jesus.

Below I am attaching the different stations of the cross so that you can remember.

Jesus institutes the Eucharist
Jesus prays in Gethsemane
Jesus before the Sanhedrin
Jesus is scourged and crowned with thorns
Jesus carries the cross to Calvary
Jesus falls under the weight of the cross
Jesus is helped by Simon of Cyrene
Jesus meets the pious women of Jerusalem
Jesus is nailed on the cross
Jesus promises Heaven to the repentant thief
Jesus entrusts Mary and John to each other
Jesus suffers and dies on the cross
Jesus is taken down from the cross, and is laid in the tomb
Jesus rises from the dead
