May we all have a peaceful and reflective Good Friday and remember what this day is all about. For Christians, this is a day of forgiveness – the ultimate day of forgiveness and mercy. In a recent blog post, Bristol explained this by quoting a lyric from a song: “After all, it’s not about what you’ve done, it’s about what’s been done for you.” Good Friday is about what was done for us. At her Catholic blog, National Review’s Kathryn Jean Lopez saw Bristol’s message and was reminded of something a priest friend told her: “live the present with God, leaving the past to His mercy and the future to His providence.”
The Living Bible’s translation of 1 Peter 2:24 promises that Christ suffered and overcame for us, and He is our example. And the Resurrection promise is “His wounds have healed ours.” That’s something to hold on to!
God bless you all on this Good Friday.
