Greetings this Good Friday! Our 40-day Lenten journey reaches its peak today, when we remember Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice. I invite all the good members of CatholicMatch to unite in this prayer:
O Jesus, Who by reason of Thy burning love for us
hast willed to be crucified
and to shed Thy Most Precious Blood
for the redemption and salvation of our souls,
look down upon us here gathered together
in remembrance of Thy most sorrowful Passion and Death,
fully trusting in Thy mercy;
cleanse us from sin by Thy grace,
sanctify our toil,
give unto us and unto all those who are dear to us our
sweeten our sufferings,
bless our families,
and to the nations so sorely afflicted,
grant Thy peace,
which is the only true peace,
so that by obeying Thy commandments
we may come at last to the glory of heaven.
What a beautiful thing, to lift up these words together, single Catholics across the globe united in prayer.
Now step away from the computer! Make this a meaningful Good Friday.
