Good Friday:Stripping of the altar

We always begin the Good Friday Liturgy with a walk of witness. The abortion mill is open today, something deeply sad. We stopped with the cross and prayed for a while and then walked around the block back to church.

The Gospel was John’s Passion and as always we had the role of being the people who sent Jesus to the cross. Even though we do this every year, read out the words, “Crucify Him!” and the awful words, “We have no king but Caesar!” It’s still very powerful and deeply distressing.

Thank God that our tabernacles only look like this once a year.
