Good Friday

April 2, 2021

On Good Friday we commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Catholics are joined by almost all other Christians in solemn commemoration on this day. The centuries fall away, and in a very real way we follow Jesus through the dusty streets to the hill and stand at the foot of his cross.

Good Friday is a day of fast. There is no celebration of the Eucharist. We receive Communion with hosts consecrated on Holy Thursday. Church bells are silent and altars are left bare.

The solemn, muted atmosphere is preserved until the Easter Vigil.

“Listen carefully, my child, to your master's precepts, and incline the ear of your heart. Receive willingly and carry out effectively your loving father's advice, that by the labor of obedience you may return to Him from whom you had departed by the sloth of disobedience.”
–St. Benedict of Nursia, The Rule of Saint Benedict
