Good Friday

Today is Good Friday, the day we remember Jesus’ death on the cross which fulfilled the scriptures.

Even during Jesus’ suffering on the cross he showed comfort and compassion to others, Jesus comforted the penitent thief who was assured by Jesus of a place in paradise. He said whilst on the cross, ‘Father forgive them, they do not know what they are doing’ and in today’s Gospel reading, John 19: 25-42, Jesus comforts his mother and John his disciple by saying, ‘here is your mother… is your son.’ During this time of the Coronavirus and the lock down we should turn to Jesus through prayer to ask for reassurance and comfort. Do we know anyone who needs our prayers, our reassurances, or comfort?
