Good Friday 2016
This sermon is about why we call Good Friday, Good? When we see how Our Lord was treated – how he was scourged, beaten, crowned with thorns, and cursed we find ourselves asking: “how can this be Good”? It is for us a bittersweet moment because we know that unless Our Lord fulfilled the wish of His Father, we could not be saved. The tremendous value of Our Lord’s Passion and Death, Death on the Cross, is a reminder to us that He can bring Good out of the most heinous Evil. It is also a way for us to recall that suffering can be beneficial to us if we offer it up to God for our sins.
