Good Friday

liturgy Add comments

It is 11:25.

One of the criminals hanging beside Jesus turns to him, and scoffs, “So you’re the Messiah, are you? Prove it by saving yourself–and us, too, while you’re at it!”

The other criminal responds, “Don’t you fear God even when you are dying? We deserve to die for our evil deeds, but this man hasn’t done anything wrong.”

There is silence for a moment.

Then he says, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.”

Jesus looks at him and says, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

The clouds grow thick, the day looks like it is getting darker.
