Good Friday

liturgy Add comments

It is 10:30 am.The leading priests, the teachers of the religious law, and other leaders (the men who arrested and condemned Jesus) come wandering up the hill, making sure their work is finished.

“He saved others,” they scoffed, “but he can’t save himself! So he is the king of Israel, is he? Let him come down from the cross, and we will believe in him! He trusted God–let God show his approval by delivering him! For he said, ‘I am the Son of God’”

Jesus stared at them from the cross, his wounds bleeding, his strength leaving.

Clouds appear over the hills, on the western horizon.
