Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion

Liturgical Color: Red

“Let him be crucified!” But he said, “Why? What evil has he done?” They only shouted the louder, “Let him be crucified!” ~Matthew 27:22–23

My suffering and sacrificial Lord, You have sanctified this day and endowed it with grace. As I commemorate Your saving sacrifice, draw me into this mystical act of love. Help me to remain prayerful and recollected throughout this day and into tomorrow. Invite me to stand before Your Cross and to gaze upon Your beaten and torn body. As I do, pour forth the abundance of Your mercy flowing from Your wounded side. Jesus, I trust in You.
