May God of all Goodness bless you. On this Good Friday, with its symbol of the Cross of Love, we Christians fully participate in the mystery of Death and Life. In facing our fear of death, we can realistically embrace the daily gift of life. May you embrace the belief that love is the strongest power and that nothing can separate the beloved from lover, friend from friend. May you see this day as Good Friday because, as in Jesus’ life, so with yours, God wraps you with courage in your troubles, and strength in your distressing times. When all seems impossible, may you lean on the Cross and rest at the foot of the Cross. This day, may you be blessed with the goodness of God’s extravagant Love.
