Good Friday

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, 

and by his wounds we are healed.

“Pierced for our transgressions"

The Passion of the Christ in Isaiah 53

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Have a sacred and Holy Holiday weekend.

The following hymn not only describes what Christ suffered but expresses so well my gratitude and love for Him.

 O sacred Head, now wounded, 
 with grief and shame weighed down, 
 now scornfully surrounded 
 with thorns, Thine only crown: 
 how pale Thou art with anguish, 
 with sore abuse and scorn! 
 How does that visage languish 
 which once was bright as morn! 

 What Thou, my Lord, has suffered 
 was all for sinners' gain; 
 mine, mine was the transgression, 
 but Thine the deadly pain. 
 Lo, here I fall, my Savior! 
 'Tis I deserve Thy place; 
 look on me with Thy favor, 
 vouchsafe to me Thy grace. 

 What language shall I borrow 
 to thank Thee, dearest Friend, 
 for this Thy dying sorrow, 
 Thy pity without end? 
 O make me Thine forever; 
 and should I fainting be, 
 Lord, let me never, never
 outlive my love for Thee.
