Good Friday 2010 Quotes: What is the Meaning of Good Friday?

April 2, 2010 by · 5 Comments 

Today, April 2, 2010 is the fifth day of the Holy Week called Good Friday. Christians around the world celebrate today’s holiday Good Friday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, His death at Calvary, and his Resurrection from the grave.

Also known as Holy Friday and Great Friday, Good Friday is a time of reflection among Catholics. Traditions during Good Friday includes the prayers to each of the fourteen Stations of the Cross, fasting, various processions, the Way of the Cross, and a Passion play called Senakulo, among others.

However, there are some fanatics that because of their intense profession of faith to Jesus Christ, they want to mimic the crucifixion of Jesus Christ in that they themselves are being crucified into a cross during Good Friday. This can be seen in the predominantly Catholic country Philippines.

Moreover, if you are looking for some Good Friday quotes to share with your friends and relative this Good Friday, you can find some of them below:

“All His life long Christ was the light of the world, but the very noontide hour of His glory was that hour when the shadow of eclipse lay over all the land, and He hung on the Cross dying in the dark. At His eventide “it was light,” and, “He Endured the Cross, despising the shame” and, lo! the shame flashed up into the very brightness of glory, and the very ignominy and the suffering were “the jewels of His crown.”

“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”

“The essence of that by which Jesus overcame the world was not suffering, but obedience. Yes, men may puzzle themselves and their hearers over the question where the power of the life of Jesus and the death of Jesus lay; but the soul of the Christian always knows that it lay in the obedience of Christ. He was determined at every sacrifice to do His Father’s will. Let us remember that; and the power of Christ’s sacrifice may enter into us, and some little share of the redemption of the world may come through us, as the great work came through Him.”

    well since we are talking about Jesus Christ lets stay with the word of GOD. it speaks nothing on good friday,but it does speak on the Resurrection. so good friday comes from man making something that came from himself.
