Homily 154 – Good Friday

April 22nd, 2011, by Fr. Shawn P. Tunink

The Strangest Day

It is a great mystery to think that the Almighty God became man and became a part of His own creation. Yesterday we celebrated the incredible mystery that this same God would then take ordinary bread and wine and change them into Himself. However, nothing can compare with what we celebrate today. Today is the strangest of days. On this day we recall the inexplicable truth that God died for us.

This event is made so real today that the sacrifice of the Mass is not celebrated. Today we come confidently before the thrown of grace to receive God’s mercy. We venerate the wood of the cross now become the tree of life and we eat of it’s fruit, Jesus the crucified given us today in Holy Communion. Oh strange and blessed day on which the savior of the world died that we might live. Come, let us worship.
