Today is widely recognized as Good Friday, a day that commemorates the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Despite the solemnity of the event, it is considered ‘good’ because of the profound significance it holds for Christians worldwide. It marks the day when Jesus, through his sacrifice, paved the way for humanity’s salvation.

The paradox of calling this day ‘great’ rather than ‘terrible’ lies in the understanding that Jesus’ death was a necessary step in the divine plan for redemption. It symbolizes the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness.

On this day, Christians are called to reflect deeply, fast, pray, and offer help to those in need. These acts of piety are not only a preparation for Easter Sunday, the day of Jesus’ resurrection, but also a reminder of the love and sacrifice that lie at the heart of the Christian faith.

In the end, the resurrection of Christ brings hope and salvation to all mankind, making Good Friday a truly ‘great’ day in the Christian calendar.
