“You are going through your Good Friday”

I took confession with a different priest than I usually do this week. Although normally one doesn’t talk about said sacrament, he said something to about coping with adversity that is important to remember.

“You are going through your Good Friday”, he said to me, “But remember, every Good Friday has its Easter.”

These words really hit me, It reminded me that at any time Christ could have decided to take up the challenge to come down from the cross but did not because he knew the suffering of Good Friday would lead to the triumph of Easter.

It is a lesson I will endeavor to keep in my heart.

    What comforting reassurance. Thanks so much for sharing it with your readers (and me.) It’s like a “Cliff’s Notes” electronic confirmation of what I felt during prayer this morning. God Bless you and your family.

    We are all hoping that your present woes turn out for the best, in the end, and that your time on the cross is short-lived.
