Good Friday 2014
We ask the Blessed Mother to help us through this liturgy, because it was she who stood at the foot of the cross. Because of the elements of joy and paschal anticipation in the Mass, it is not fitting for this day in which all joy has been suppressed. The Church is in mourning for her God, Who has died for her this day. The Church is calling upon sinner to repent, and to partake of the fruit of the new tree – Christ Himself on the tree of the cross.
