A Good & Hard Good Friday
Good Friday isÂ goodÂ because it interrupts our weekly liturgy reminding us of the bounty of grace won for us at the cross.
Good Friday isÂ hardÂ because it reminds us of the sheer innocence of a spotless Lamb who meets utter horrorâ€”Jesus slain forÂ ourÂ sins.
Goodness, Jesus is worth pausing to adore on Good Friday as we move toward the great hope of Easter Sunday. After all, we canâ€™t have one without the other.
