We enter today into the most solemn day of the Triduum – the commemoration of the death of Jesus on the cross of Calvary. We call these short but history-changing hours, the “Passion” of Jesus. The word comes from the Latin,”passio” which means passive. Up until this point, Jesus’ public life was just the opposite – He actively gave his life away by healing, miracle-working and preaching. Then, at the appointed time, he passively, but intentionally, laid down his life. No one took it from him. Rather, in a selfless and unparalleled act of love, Jesus offered his very death as a gift for all humanity.
We invite you to join with our community as we commemorate the events of Good Friday in two different liturgies: the traditional Celebration of the Lord’s Passion at 12:00 noon and/or Lamentations at 7:00 p.m., a modern reflection on Good Friday.
