Thoughts for Good Friday

Although Lent may seem a sad time,
we should make it a 'Joyful season of the year',
one that challenges us to renew and strengthen
our faith, hope and love for the Lord.

How often have I tried to do God's will and failed?
Lord help me not to be discouraged by my failures.
Give me strength to persevere,
for I know that not to try harder is the worst "failure".

The above thoughts and prayers are taken from The Stations of the Cross written by Fr. Philip Heng, S.J.


God gave me the gift of Himself. Totally.
My challenge now is to accept this gift. Totally.
Hmmmm. Not sure exactly how to do that -
but I am going to pray for you and for me,
that we find out how and do it.

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise You
Because by Your holy cross
You have redeemed the world.
