Christians observe Good Friday with prayers, reconciliation


It's not easy playing Jesus, an actor has said, before doing just that during a Sydney re-enactment of the crucifixion of Christ. The day of the crucifixion is called Good Friday. Jesus himself was seen that day, and for days afterwards.

Several Good Friday ends with the church bell ringing 33 times for each year of Jesus Christ's earthly life and his sacrifice.

According to the accounts in the Gospels, the royal soldiers, guided by Jesus' disciple, Judas Iscariot, arrested Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Head of the Catholic church, Pope Francis said the ustification Jesus offered by dying on the cross "saves us from corruption", he said, stressing, as he often has, that while everyone is a sinner, Christians must never be corrupt.

Following this the high priest condemned him for blasphemy, and the Sanhedrin concurred with a sentence of death. Many church services are held in the afternoon, usually around noon or midday to 3pm, to remember the hours when Jesus hung on the cross. The rest of the day is spent in reflection, prayer and fasting. Even many people also abstain from eating meat on this day.

- Another theory is that the Good in Good Friday derives from God or "God's Friday" or corrupt form of "God's Friday". We are reminded how broken we are and how through unconditional love, we have been set free.

The joy of Easter is the suffering Jesus, the son of God, the image of God, willingly endured that we may be forgiven of our sins and brought back to Harmony with God, our heavenly Father that was his assignment and all the the joy that feels our soul. Let's take a moment to meditate on whether we are still sinning and what we can do about it. Stay pure!
