Holy Week – Good Friday (3/30)

The words today Jesus speaks –

  • that the Father forgives them;
  • that He is abandoned;
  • that His soul is commended into the Father’s hands;
  • that another will share paradise with Him;
  • that His mother is our mother;
  • that He thirsts;
  • that, truly, everything is finished –

have meaning only because He is utterly perfect love (cf. John 13:1).
