Good Friday marks the day of Christ’s crucifixion and death. While it is a somber day of remembering Christ’s death, we know that our salvation was bought with Christ’s suffering and death.

Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, look with loving mercy on your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, to be given over to the hands of sinners, and to suffer death on the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
