A Good Friday World


I remember someone wrote that we live in a Good Friday World where there is a lot of injustice, discrimination, and suffering, among other ills of society and the individual. This is so much more pronounced during the pandemic when death and the pain and grief it brings along are all too common. The description could not be any better.


But why Good Friday? Why not Terrifying Friday, Depressing Friday, or Deathly Friday? These words seem more appropriate than the description "Good." At first glance, it is.


But if we think more deeply, "Good" is best because Friday does not end on Friday. It is always followed by Easter Sunday. We know we do not stop living on Friday. We continue our lives knowing that there will be new life on Sunday. Even during the darkest days of our lives, we know that down the road, we will see the light. It may not come in three days as in Easter, but for sure it will come. It may come quietly, but surely, as our faith in Jesus turns to trusting in God's plan for us.


Just as Jesus trusted in God the Father's plan for him.
