Good Friday: At the Foot of the Cross ~ He Loves me. 

icon"Jesus said, 'It is finished.' Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit." (Jn 19:30)

Good Friday may be a difficult day to encounter. We are invited to fast and dedicate more time to prayer and reflecting on the readings of the Passion Narrative (John 18:1-19:42). We imagine the scourging, the taunting, the betrayal, the crown of thorns, the crucifixion and nailing of Jesus to the cross.

We are challenged not to look away from the cross, but to remain uncomfortably and helplessly there, to be with someone we profess to love ~ Jesus. To remain in His gaze as He finds some solace in "my companionship."

Can I look up and gaze in love with Jesus on the cross?

Paradoxical as it may be, we are also reminded of "Love" ~ the love of one man, who chose to die for you and me.

The Anima Christi Prayer
Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within your wounds, hide me.
Do not allow me to be separated from you.
From the malevolent enemy, defend me.
In the hour of my death, call me,
and bid me come to you.
that with you saints, I may praise you forever and ever.
Amen.


(Translation by Ganss, SJ)
