After the Good Friday liturgy tonight (which I attended at the parish where I was received fifteen years ago), I came home planning to go to bed early. (Good Friday always leaves me feeling like I’ve been through the wringer.) But then I noticed that TBN was playing The Passion of the Christ, my all-time favorite about the Lord, so, of course, I had to watch it again. The screencap (which is not of great quality) below is an image that hit me hard when I saw it the first time. And the impact has not lessened with the passing of the years.
I pray that Lent and Holy Week have brought you the blessings of the contemplation of Christ’s Passion and Death; and I pray that you will also receive the blessings of the joy to come in the Glory of His Resurrection when the Light Who Enlightens All Men arises this Easter. May the Peace of Christ be with you, now and forever. Amen.
