Category: Good Friday

Good Friday is celebrated as a Christian religious holiday. The holiday happens during Holy Week and is considered as a part of Paschal Triduum on a Friday that comes before Easter Sunday. Good Friday is also known as Black Friday, Great Friday, or Holy Friday. Good Friday is a national holiday in many countries around the world, especially in the Anglican and Catholic nations. This solemn day is observed by fasting and then with somber processions.

The celebration of Good Friday dates back to the 4th century by Egeria. This ancient practice denotes a time of self-punishment and fasting on the death anniversary of Christ. Nomenclature of “Good Friday” is derived from “God’s Friday,” although the correct reason for this kind of name is still not known.

Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary. It is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, and Black Friday.

10 Good Friday Activities

Good Friday Activities

LOTS of Good Friday Activities, Catholic Inspired ~ Arts, Crafts, and Activities! For the hours spent at home by those who cannot get to the rites of Good Friday, it is good to plan special Good Friday Activities in order to help all keep a spirit of recollection. Good Friday is a very important day for Catholics. It’s the day Jesus died on the cross for us and saved us from our sin. Not only is it an important day, but it’s also a day of fasting, prayer, and mourning.

Good Friday Activities

Good Friday Activities

Here are some simple ways to observe Good Friday Activities in your home with your kids:

  • Fast. This is required by the Catholic church if you’re health and 18 years or older, but I also encourage my kids to skip snacks and any other frivolous eating throughout the day.
  • Keep fun activities to a minimum. I know that the world wants to throw Easter parties and have egg hunts on Good Friday, but it’s just not the time for fun and celebration.
  • Skip work and/or school if possible. That’s pretty easy for us as homeschoolers- I realize not everyone has this option. Although even when I was a little girl, my mom never sent us to school on Good Friday.
  • Eat hot cross buns for breakfast. Legend says there was a priest in 1361 A.D. that gave out hot cross buns to the poor on Good Friday morning, and the tradition was born.
  • Wear black. It’s the color of mourning.
  • Read the passion story from the Bible. We like to read the passion story from scripture with this symbolic scripture lunch

  • Do extra good deeds and sacrifices. If you have a method for tracking sacrifices such as a crown of thorns, encourage your kids to do this today.
  • Go to Stations of the Cross or Veneration of the Cross at your local Catholic church. You may even be able to find a live Stations of the Cross in your town. I also like to use our Stations of the Cross eggs and listen to our Stations of the Cross CD.
  • Watch the story of the passion on a movie. I really like The Passion Of Christ for me, and I like The Greatest Adventure Easter Story for little kids.
  • Good Friday is the first day of the Divine Mercy Novena, so don’t forget to start it.
  • The most sacred hours during Good Friday are from noon to 3:00, because this is when Jesus was on the cross. They’re sometimes known as the 3 hours of agony. During this time, hold a silence in your home, and encourage your children to do the same (to the best of their ability). Turn off the phones, TV, and other devices. Pray the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary, read from scripture, have your children quietly draw or color religious pictures, encourage them to meditate on the passion through their passion peg dolls, or read religious books.

Good Friday is one of the few topics about which there are hardly any funny and clean jokes. However, once you think about it, it’s compulsive to research the reason behind the name Good Friday.

Funny Good Friday Jokes: 

Q: What day does an Easter egg hate the most?
A: Good Fry-day.

Q: How do you get a nun pregnant on Good Friday?

Good Friday or, as the Jewish like to call it ….. “We got him day”.

It’s sad that Americans get more excited about Black Friday than Good Friday; more interested in sales than the greatest gift.

If Catholics call the day that Jesus died ‘Good’ Friday, then just imagine how ecstatic they’ll be when they find out that God doesn’t exist

There are 3 fundamental truths about religion: Jews don’t recognize Jesus as the Son of God, Protestants don’t recognize the Pope as the Vicar of Christ, and Baptists don’t recognize each other at the bar on Good Friday.

Work Or Play

A man wonders if having sex on Good Friday is a sin because he is not sure if sex is work or play. He asks a priest for his opinion on this question. The priest says after consulting the Bible, “My son, after an exhaustive search I am positive sex is work and is not permitted on Good Friday.”

The man thinks: “What does a priest know about sex?”

He goes to minister… a married man, experienced…. for the answer. He queries the minister and receives the same reply. Sex is work and not for Good Friday! Not pleased with the reply, he seeks out the ultimate authority — a man of thousands of year’s tradition and knowledge: a rabbi.

The rabbi ponders the question and states, “My son, sex is definitely play.”

The man replies, “rabbi, how can you be so sure when so many others tell me sex is work?”

The rabbi softly speaks, ” If sex were work…my wife would have the maid do it.”

Good Friday Vigil

A parishioner was in front of me coming out of church one day, and the preacher was standing at the door as he always is to shake hands. He grabbed the parishioner by the hand and pulled him aside. The Pastor said to him, “You need to join the Army of the Lord!” The parishioner replied, “I’m already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor.” Pastor questioned, “How come I don’t see you except at Christmas and Good Friday?” He whispered back, “I’m in the secret service.”

Drinking and Driving An Irish priest is driving down to New York for service on Good Friday and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest’s breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, “Sir, have you been drinking?” “Just water,” says the priest, fingers crossed. The trooper says, “Then why do I smell wine?” The priest looks at the bottle and says, “Good Lord! He’s done it again!”

Red Lamp
A little boy was listening to a long and excessively boring liturgy of the passion of Christ in church on Good Friday. Suddenly the red sanctuary lamp caught his eye. Tugging his father’s sleeve, he said, “Daddy, when the light turns green can we go?”

Surprise Bank Closure

One day just before Easter Eddie pulled into the supermarket car park.  His wife Brenda had picked up a few things and was waiting for him.

“Hi, honey,” Eddie cheerfully said as Brenda got into the car. “How was your day?

“I can’t believe it,” Brenda said. “It looks like our bank is in trouble.”

“What?” Eddie asked.

“It’s closing at the end of the week,” Brenda replied.

That can’t be right,” Eddie said. “It’s a national bank!”

“Well it’s true,” Brenda came back. “I have seen the sign in the window.”

“What sign?” Eddie asked.

“Drive past the bank and you’ll see,” Brenda replied. Eddie headed in the direction of the bank.

“Right there,” Brenda said as they drove by the bank. “See the sign? It says, ‘We Will Be Closed for Good  Friday!’ ”

Another Good Friday Joke

Roger left for the service at 10:45 on Good Friday morning.  However, instead of going to church, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with the boys and spent his entire pay packet.

Finally, Roger appeared at home on Sunday night, and obviously, he was confronted by his angry wife,  Martha who castigated Roger for nearly two hours with a tirade befitting his actions.  Finally, Martha stopped the nagging and said to Roger, ‘How would you like it if you didn’t see me for two or three days?’

Roger replied grimly, ‘That would be fine with me.’

Monday went by and he didn’t see his Martha. Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results.

By the Thursday, the swelling had gone down just enough so that Roger he could see Martha a little out of the corner of his left eye

The Funny Story of the Taxi Driver and St Peter

One Good Friday a priest and a taxi driver both died and went to heaven.  St. Peter was at the Pearly gates waiting for them.

‘Come with me,’ said St. Peter to the taxi driver.

The taxi driver did as he was told and followed St Peter to a mansion. It had everything you could imagine from a bowling alley to an Olympic size pool.

‘Oh my word, thank you,’ said the taxi driver.

Next, St. Peter led the priest to a rough old shack with a bunk bed and a little old television set.

‘Wait, I think you are a little mixed up,’ said the priest. ‘Shouldn’t I be the one who gets the mansion? After all I was a priest, went to church every day, and preached God’s word.’

‘Yes, that’s true.’ St Peter rejoined, ‘ But during your sermons, people slept.  When the taxi driver drove, everyone prayed.’

Good Friday — isn’t that the day Jesus died? I don’t think that was Good Friday for him. I don’t see him up there going, ‘Wooo! Party! Thank Dad, it’s Friday!’

Here are 10 clean jokes you can try out on your peeps this weekend!

    • What breed of dog can do magic tricks?   Labracadabrador…
    • Why do cows wear bells?  Because their horns don’t work!
    • What do you call a bear in the rain? A grizzly bear.
    • What do you call a bear with no teeth?  gummy bear
    • Why didn’t the skeleton go to the party?  Because he had nobody to go with
    • Why couldn’t the bike stand up?  Because it was too tired!
    • What’s black & white and red all over?  A newspaper
    • What did the magnet say to the other magnet?  I think I’m attracted to you!
    • Why don’t you see elephants hiding in trees? Because they’re really good at it
  • What did the buffalo tell his child when he dropped him off at school? Bison

In truth, Mourning Friday would be a better description for the day when Christ was crucified.  However, there are two possible derivations of ‘Good Friday’.  One is that ‘Good’ is a transformation of ‘God’s Friday’.  Holders of this theory point out ‘God be with ye’ has become ‘Goodbye’.
The other theory is that the choice of the word ‘Good’ is deliberate, it’s just that our perspective had changed.  If in the first century after Christ’s birth Friday was traditionally a feast day, then this particular Friday was the most significant of the whole year.  Another idea, proposed by the most devout is this is Good Friday in that it’s the ultimate test of the Christian faith; namely that Christ died, and was resurrected on the third day.
It may be useful to look for clues in the name that other languages give for this day, for example, the Eastern Orthodox Church calls this day Great and Holy Friday.
French: Vendredi Saint (Friday Saint).
German: Karfreitag.
Italian: Vendredi Santo (Friday Saint again)
Conclusion: Perhaps Good Friday was originally God’s Friday.

Good Friday Story

The day before Good Friday is known as Maundy Thursday. In Germany on this day, they dye eggs green.
Known as Ostern in German-speaking countries of Austria, Germany and Switzerland, it is important to Catholics and Protestants alike.
Easter customs can be traced back to pre-Christian, pagan rites that were related to the beginning of Spring and fertility, symbolized by daffodils, rabbits and eggs.
The art of decorating hollowed out eggs, Easter eggs or Ausgeblasene Eier, is an Austrian and German tradition.
Nowadays, the Satzvey Castle, which is a beautiful, moated castle in Germany, has an Easter market that displays elaborately decorated eggs along with spring-inspired arts and crafts.
The town centres in Southern Germany decorate their fountains for two weeks starting on Good Friday and Northern Germany celebrates by burning big piles of logs, sometimes with a witch puppet to signify the end of Winter. Beer, hot punch and grilled sausages are served.
In Franconian Switzerland to Northern Bavaria, the city fountains are decorated with real, blown eggs.

Wish you all a very happy good Friday, enjoy this good Friday with your friends and family.

Good Friday Prayer

Good Friday Prayer

Good Friday Prayer can consult with any of the prayers prayed via Christians on Good Friday, the Friday earlier than Easter, or to all such prayers collectively. On nowadays inside the church calendar, we pause to reflect on the supreme sacrifice of Christ our Saviour on the cross on Calvary Hill some 2000 years ago. This page has four Christian prayers for Good Friday, with a prayer for commencing a morning service, an inspiring devotional prayer, a short beautiful prayer for Eastertime, and a traditional acquire for the day.

Eastern Orthodox and Byzantine-rite Catholic prayer on Good Friday

Eastern Orthodox Christians and lots of Byzantine-ceremony Catholics, who use the identical liturgy, spend at the present time fasting from all meals to the volume that their health allows. Neither the Divine Liturgy nor the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts may be celebrated, thereby fasting from the Eucharist as well (excluding communion for the dying). Instead, they come together 3 instances in the course of the day for communal worship:

  • Royal Hours inside the forenoon includes many Psalms, hymns, Old Testament and New Testament readings
  • Vespers of Great and Holy Friday within the afternoon, commemorating the Descent from the Cross
  • Matins of Great and Holy Saturday in the nighttime, reenacting the Burial of Jesus, with prayers praising him for his demise and immanent Resurrection.

The prayers include the commemoration of the occasions of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial. During this time, the hymns do not forget the coming Resurrection. Holding each occasion in anxiety, the subsequent troparia (hymns) are sung during the afternoon prayers even as the epitaphios (shroud) is being carried to the tomb:

Roman Catholic prayers

In the Roman Rite the first part of the Celebration of the Passion of the Lord consists of the reading or chanting of Isaiah 52:13-53:12, Hebrews 4:14-16, 5:7-9, and the Passion account from the Gospel of John, which is often divided between more than one singer or reader. This part concludes with a series of prayers: for the Church, the Pope, the clergy and laity of the Church, those preparing for baptism, the unity of Christians, the Jewish people, those who do not believe in Christ, those who do not believe in God, those in public office, those in special need.

The Good Friday Prayer refers to the section of the Good Friday Service called “Intercessory Prayers” where the prayer is introduced, people pray for a minute followed by the prayer by the priest.

Good Friday prayer for the Jews

The Good Friday prayer for the Jews is an annual prayer in the Christian, particularly Roman Catholic, liturgy. It is one of several petitions known as the “Solemn Collects” or “Solemn Intercessions” that are made in the Good Friday service for various classes and stations of peoples: for the Church; for the pope; for bishops, priests and deacons; for the faithful; for catechumens; for other Christians; for the Jews; for others who do not believe in Christ; for those who do not believe in God; for those in public office; and for those in special need. These prayers are very ancient, predating the eighth century at least (as they are found in the Gelasian Sacramentary) and may be from as early as the second century.

Good Friday Prayer

O Jesus, Who by reason of Thy burning love for us
hast willed to be crucified
and to shed Thy Most Precious Blood
for the redemption and salvation of our souls,
look down upon us here gathered together
in remembrance of Thy most sorrowful Passion and Death,
fully trusting in Thy mercy;
cleanse us from sin by Thy grace,
sanctify our toil,
give unto us and unto all those who are dear to us our
daily bread,
sweeten our sufferings,
bless our families,
and to the nations so sorely afflicted,
grant Thy peace,
which is the only true peace,
so that by obeying Thy commandments
we may come at last to the glory of heaven.

Amen.

Good Friday Prayer of the Seven Last Words

O divine Jesus, incarnate Son of God, for our salvation you consented to be born in a stable, to spend you whole life amid poverty, trials, and misery, and to die surrounded by sufferings on the Cross.

At the hour of my death, please tell your Father, Father, forgive them.

Tell your Mother, Behold your child. Tell my soul, This day you shall be with me in paradise.

My God, my God, do not forsake me in that hour.

I thirst, yes, my soul thirsts for you who are the fountain of living waters.

My life passes away like a shadow; in a short while, everything will be accomplished.

Therefore, my adored Saviour, from this moment and for all eternity, into your hands I commend my spirit.

Lord Jesus, receive my soul.

Good Friday Prayer of Love to the Crucified Lord

O Jesus, it is not the heavenly reward you have promised which impels me to love you; neither is it the threat of hell that keeps me from offending you.

It is you, O Lord, it is the sight of you affixed to the Cross and suffering insults; it is the sight of your broken body, as well as your pains and your death.

There is nothing you can give me to make me love you.

For even if there were no heaven and no hell I would still love you as I do.

Amen.

Most dear Jesus, likened to the infamous Barabbas, rejected by your people, and unjustly sentenced to death, have mercy on us, O Lord.

Most dear Jesus, burdened with the weight of the Cross and led to the place of execution like a lamb to the slaughter, have mercy on us, O Lord.

Most dear Jesus, reckoned with the wicked, blasphemed, and derided, and given the gall to drink to mitigate your pain, have mercy on us, O Lord.

Most dear Jesus, dying on the Cross in the presence of Mary, pierced with a lance that drew blood and water from your side, have mercy on us, O Lord.

Most dear Jesus, taken down and placed in the arms of your Sorrowful Mother, have mercy on us, O Lord.

Most dear Jesus, horribly bruised and marked with five wounds, annointed for burial and placed in a tomb, have mercy on us, O Lord.

My Jesus, I thank you for dying on the Cross for my sins. Have mercy on us, O Lord.

Amen.

Good Friday Prayer for the Grace of the Passion

O Lord, for the redemption of the world, you willed to be born among human beings, subjected to the rite of circumcision, rejected by the people, betrayed by Judas with a kiss, bound with cords, led like an innocent lamb to slaughter, shamelessly exposed to the gaze of Annas as well as Caiaphas, Pilate, and Herod, accused by false witnesses, tormented by scourges and insults, spat upon and crowned with thorns, struck with blows of hand and reed, blindfolded and stripped of your garments, affixed to the wood and lifted high on the Cross, numbered among thieves, given gall and vinegar to drink, and pierced by a lance.

Lord, by these holiest sufferings which we, your unworthy servants, devoutly call to mind, and by your holy Cross and death, deliver us from the pains of hell, and be pleased to take us where you took the penitent thief who was crucified with you.

You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever.

Amen.

Jesus, bound by the soldiers,
Have mercy on us.

Jesus, forsaken by your disciples,
Have mercy on us.

Jesus, before Annas and Caiaphas,
Have mercy on us.

Jesus, struck by a servant on the face,
Have mercy on us.

Jesus, accused by false witnesses,
Have mercy on us.

Good Friday – Good Friday Poem

BY -Christina Rossetti

Am I a stone, and not a sheep,
That I can stand, O Christ, beneath Thy cross,
To number drop by drop Thy blood’s slow loss,
And yet not weep?

Not so those women loved
Who with exceeding grief lamented Thee;
Not so fallen Peter, weeping bitterly;
Not so the thief was moved;

Not so the Sun and Moon
Which hid their faces in a starless sky,
A horror of great darkness at broad noon –
I, only I.

Yet give not o’er,
But seek Thy sheep, true Shepherd of the flock;
Greater than Moses, turn and look once more
And smite a rock.

“The Everlasting Mercy” – Good Friday Poem

BY – John Masefield

“The Everlasting Mercy” - Good Friday Poem

“The Everlasting Mercy” – Good Friday Poem

O Christ who holds the open gate,
O Christ who drives the furrow straight,
O Christ, the plough, O Christ, the laughter
Of holy white birds flying after,
Lo, all my heart’s field red and torn,
And Thou wilt bring the young green corn
The young green corn divinely springing,
The young green corn forever singing;
And when the field is fresh and fair
Thy blessèd feet shall glitter there,
And we will walk the weeded field,
And tell the golden harvest’s yield,
The corn that makes the holy bread
By which the soul of man is fed,
The holy bread, the food unpriced,
Thy everlasting mercy, Christ.

“The Dream of the Rood” – Good Friday Poem

Anglo-Saxon, 8th century, trans. Richard Hammer (1970)

“The Dream of the Rood” - Good Friday Poem

“The Dream of the Rood” – Good Friday Poem

The earliest Christian poem in English

The Rood (cross of Christ) speaks:

“It was long past – I still remember it – 
That I was cut down at the copse’s end,
Moved from my root. Strong enemies there took me,
Told me to hold aloft their criminals,
Made me a spectacle. Men carried me
Upon their shoulders, set me on a hill,
A host of enemies there fastened me.

“And then I saw the Lord of all mankind
Hasten with eager zeal that He might mount
Upon me. I durst not against God’s word
Bend down or break, when I saw tremble all
The surface of the earth. Although I might
Have struck down all the foes, yet stood I fast.

“Then the young hero (who was God almighty)
Got ready, resolute and strong in heart.
He climbed onto the lofty gallows-tree,
Bold in the sight of many watching men,
When He intended to redeem mankind.
I trembled as the warrior embraced me.
But still I dared not bend down to the earth,
Fall to the ground. Upright I had to stand.

“A rood I was raised up; and I held high 
The noble King, the Lord of heaven above.
I dared not stoop. They pierced me with dark nails;
The scars can still be clearly seen on me,

The open wounds of malice. Yet might I
Not harm them. They reviled us both together.
I was made wet all over with the blood
Which poured out from his side, after He had 
Sent forth His spirit. And I underwent
Full many a dire experience on that hill.
I saw the God of hosts stretched grimly out.
Darkness covered the Ruler’s corpse with clouds
His shining beauty; shadows passed across,
Black in the darkness. All creation wept,
Bewailed the King’s death; Christ was on the cross….

“The Dream of the Rood” - Good Friday Poem

“The Dream of the Rood” – Good Friday Poem

“Now you may understand, dear warrior,
That I have suffered deeds of wicked men
And grievous sorrows. Now the time has come
That far and wide on earth men honor me,
And all this great and glorious creation,
And to this beacon offers prayers. On me
The Son of God once suffered; therefore now
I tower mighty underneath the heavens,
And I may heal all those in awe of me.
Once I became the cruelest of tortures,
Most hateful to all nations, till the time
I opened the right way of life for men.”

Poem: Good Friday, 1613. Riding Westward

BY – John Donne

Let mans Soule be a Spheare, and then, in this,
The intelligence that moves, devotion is,
And as the other Spheares, by being growne
Subject to forraigne motion, lose their owne,
And being by others hurried every day,
Scarce in a yeare their naturall forme obey:
Pleasure or businesse, so, our Soules admit
For their first mover, and are whirld by it.
Hence is’t, that I am carryed towards the West
This day, when my Soules forme bends toward the East.
There I should see a Sunne, by rising set,
And by that setting endlesse day beget;
But that Christ on this Crosse, did rise and fall,
Sinne had eternally benighted all.
Yet dare I’almost be glad, I do not see
That spectacle of too much weight for mee.
Who sees Gods face, that is selfe life, must dye;
What a death were it then to see God dye?
It made his owne Lieutenant Nature shrinke,
It made his footstoole crack, and the Sunne winke.
Could I behold those hands which span the Poles,
And tune all spheares at once peirc’d with those holes?
Could I behold that endlesse height which is
Zenith to us, and our Antipodes,
Humbled below us? or that blood which is
The seat of all our Soules, if not of his,
Made durt of dust, or that flesh which was worne
By God, for his apparell, rag’d, and torne?
If on these things I durst not looke, durst I
Upon his miserable mother cast mine eye,
Who was Gods partner here, and furnish’d thus
Halfe of that Sacrifice, which ransom’d us?
Though these things, as I ride, be from mine eye,
They’are present yet unto my memory,
For that looks towards them; and thou look’st towards mee,
O Saviour, as thou hang’st upon the tree;
I turne my backe to thee, but to receive
Corrections, till thy mercies bid thee leave.
O thinke mee worth thine anger, punish mee,
Burne off my rusts, and my deformity,
Restore thine Image, so much, by thy grace,
That thou may’st know mee, and I’ll turne my face.

Faith in Focus – Good Friday Poem

Good Friday,

When they crucified Jesus,

the day became night

as darkness was sent from above.

So far from the Father

lonely, forsaken

yet, so near in His infinite love.

When they mocked Him and flogged Him,

they were unaware

of the darkness that clouded their mind.

The sin of the world

was put on His shoulders

He offered His life for mankind.

When they thought they had killed Him,

they had taken His life,

He had given it out of free will.

In the outside world,

no-one knew what had happened

far away, on Golgotha’s hill. 

But, the Father in mercy

and endless compassion,

looked down from on high on His Son.

Who committed His Spirit

in the hands of the Father,

and in triumph cried out: It is done!

Jesus’ body is taken down from the cross – Good Friday Poem

Jesus’ body is taken down from the cross - Good Friday Poem

Jesus’ body is taken down from the cross – Good Friday Poem

His spirit and his life he breathes in all
Now on this cross, his body breathes no more
Here at the centre, everything is still
Spent, and emptied, opened to the core.
A quiet taking down, a prising loose
A cross-beam lowered like a weighing scale
Unmaking of each thing that had its use
Along withdrawing of each bloodied nail,
This is ground zero, emptiness and space
With nothing left to say or think or do
But look unflinching on the sacred face
That cannot move or change or look at you.
Yet in that pricing loose and letting me
He has unfastened you and set you free.

Jesus dies on the cross – Good Friday Poem

The dark nails pierce him and the sky turns black

Jesus dies on the cross - Good Friday Poem

Jesus dies on the cross – Good Friday Poem

We watch him as he labours to draw breath

He takes our breath away to give it back,
Return it to its birth through his slow death.
We hear him struggle to breathe through the pain
Who once breathed out his spirit on the deep,
Who formed us when he mixed the dust with rain
And drew us into consciousness from sleep.
His spirit and his life he breathes in all
Mantles his world in his one atmosphere
And now he comes to breathe beneath the pall
Of our pollutions, draw our injured air
To cleanse it and renew. His final breath
Breathes us, and bears us through the gates of death.

He will come back one day once again, for Jesus is our best friend. 
May you have a Holy and Fulfilling Good Friday!

For he’s the best friend you could ever have. 
His love for you is abundant and shows for boundaries, 
Unconditional and pure, this love is in its truest form filled with feelings. 
So this Good Friday put your trust in our dear Lord, 
And he will make all your problems disappear. 
Good Friday to you.

He came down in human form before 2000 years, 
He will be back again to show us his love for us, 
So let’s prepare ourselves for his special coming, 
Let’s replace the bitterness in our hearts, let’s work on being more loving. 
Blood poured from his head as they pierced him with crowns, 
His bones hurt as they made him carry his cross all the way to Calvary, 
His love for us never became less in spite of this brutality, 
He still continues to love humanity.

Jesus our Lord, changed the world in such a beautiful way 
That today even after 2000 years we remember Him every day. 
This Good Friday, let us take time to ponder on His great sacrifice, 
Let us promise to be good Christians every day of our lives. 
May His light shine upon you this Good Friday!
