Fridays During Lent
At three o'clock on a Friday, on a hillside called Calvary, the Savior of the world took his last breath. All for love of us.
"It was now about noon and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon because of an eclipse of the sun. Then the veil of the temple was torn down the middle. Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit"; and when he had said this he breathed his last."
On Fridays during Lent, we should take the time to reflect on what Christ has done for us, not only by fasting, but also by the various devotions that our churches offer, like attending the Stations of the Cross. We should take some time on the Fridays during Lent walking with Christ to Calvary, immersed in his love and mercy.
