Good Friday

10 April 2020 | General Interest

 Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

(Luke 23:46)

Jesus Crucified,

the final moment of your total surrender

teaches me how to let go with a trusting heart. 

I can draw strength from you today.

As we come to this Good Friday, we are confronted throughout  the world by suffering and death in the form of the Corona virus.  ... we also see dignity in the face of suffering and death. The dignity of those who face the end of their own lives with calm. The dignity of those who work in our health care services, as they carry on despite everything and despite the threat to their own lives. The dignity of those who do accept the restrictions and hardships imposed on them for the sake both of their own welfare and that of others.
