Good Friday 2020 Images, Quotes, Status, Messages: Good Friday is a day of remembrance of triumph over death. As a stark reminder of the grave injustice done to the sinless Christ, the day is also called Black or Holy Day. It is marked by intercessory prayers for the Church and the entire world, with solemn hymns and reading of scriptures from the Holy Bible.
It is said that the ‘omission of the prayer of consecration deepens our sense of loss because Mass throughout the year reminds us of the Lord’s triumph over death’. It is believed that God poured out his wrath on sins over Jesus in order to ‘bestow forgiveness and salvation out to the nations’.
Here are some messages to share with your loved ones this Good Friday.
* Mercy, peace and love. May the grace and Lord surround and be with you on Good Friday.
* The dripping blood our only drink,
The bloody flesh our only food:
In spite of which we like to think
That we are sound, substantial flesh and blood –
Again, in spite of that, we call this Friday good.
* Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf in springtime.

*I wish the Lord keeps you in his loving care now and always.
