Good Friday


English Hand-Thrown Vase with Satin Black Glaze by Edward Thomas Radford for Pilkington Royal Lancastrian (LEO Design)


Good Friday is the day on which most Christians commemorate the condemnation, torture and execution of Jesus.  It is the most solemn day of the Christian calendar.  For the faithful, however, the brutality and iniquity of the events are tempered by the truth to come: it is only after Jesus has died that He will rise from the dead.  While Good Friday is a somber remembrance of Christ's loving sacrifice, Easter is the event which provides Christian salvation.  

For Christians, may you have a Blessed and Holy Easter.  A Happy Pesach to the Jewish faithful.  And a warm Ramadan Mubarak to Muslims who are celebrating their holy month of prayer, fasting and good works.
