Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and this day is observed as a day of sacrifice by people across the world. It precedes Easter Sunday. It is a part of the holy week known as Paschal Triduum, which is a latin phrase that means three days. Good Friday is observed as a holiday across many countries in the world, including the United States.
Under most of the denominations, this day is observed with fast, and adults are expected to refrain from eating and drinking — as long as their health permits. However, a very few, like Britain and Australia, there is custom of toasting and eating specific food, like the hot cross buns.
On this day, Christians across the world – irrespective of the denominations, remind themselves of the great sacrifice. Additionally, there is a custom of conducting services. While you get started with the day of sacrifice, use the below quotes and messages to instill the appreciation of the supreme sacrifice of Jesus amongst your friends and family.
On this special day I have some Good Friday Quotes, Sayings, Wishes and Messages feel free to share these with your friends.
Good Friday Quotes
Christmas and Easter can be subjects for poetry, but Good Friday, like Auschwitz, cannot. The reality is so horrible it is not surprising that people should have found it a stumbling block to faith.
– W. H. Auden
The dripping blood our only drink, The bloody flesh our only food: In spite of which we like to think That we are sound, substantial flesh and blood– Again, in spite of that, we call this Friday good.
– T. S. Eliot
I am wholly deserving of all the consequences that I will in fact never receive simply because God unashamedly stepped in front of me on the cross, unflinchingly spread His arms so as to completely shield me from the retribution that was mine to bear, and repeatedly took the blows. And I stand entirely unwounded, utterly lost in the fact that the while His body was pummeled and bloodied to death by that which was meant for me and me alone, I have not a scratch.
– Craig D. Lounsbrough
Good Friday is not about us trying to “get right with God.” It is about us entering the difference between God and humanity and just touching it for a moment. Touching the shimmering sadness of humanity’s insistence that we can be our own gods, that we can be pure and all-powerful.
– Nadia Bolz-Weber, Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People
On Good Friday last year the SS found some pretext to punish 60 priests with an hour on “the tree.” That is the mildest camp punishment. They tie a man’s hands together behind his back, palms facing out and fingers pointing backward. Then they turn his hands inwards, tie a chain around his wrists and hoist him up by it. His own wight twists his joints and pulls them apart…Several of the priest who were hung up last year never recovered and died. If you don’t have a strong heart, you don’t survive it. Many have a permanently crippled hand.
– Jean Bernard,
Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf in springtime.
– Martin Luther
No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.
– William Penn
To holy people the very name of Jesus is a name to feed upon, a name to transport. His name can raise the dead and transfigure and beautify the living.
– John Henry Newman
I believe in person to person. Every person is Christ for me, and since there is only one Jesus, that person is the one person in the world at that moment.
– Mother Teresa
Exalt the Cross! God has hung the destiny of the race upon it. Other things we may do in the realm of ethics, and on the lines of philanthropic reforms; but our main duty converges into setting that one glorious beacon of salvation, Calvary’s Cross, before the gaze of every immortal soul.
– Theodore Ledyard Cuyler
