Good Friday

Nicolas Tournier, 17th Cent.

I have been trying to come up with something profound to say about Good Friday but my failure to do so gave me an idea about what to write. The crucifixion is such a deep and solemn mystery it is difficult to contemplate. We cannot fathom the weight of sin that Christ bore nor can we truly appreciate the glory of salvation. Much can be said and has been said about the Crucifixion, but all falls short. The best we can do is kneel at the foot of the cross in adoration.
