Imagine Jesus walking to Calvary and His mother following to be near to her child. I don’t think any mom in that situation would call it “Good Friday”.
Both Jesus and His Mother accepted it as God’s will.
We call it “Good Friday” because our sins were forgiven and the gates to heaven open to us.
We should all have joy in knowing the possibility of eternal life was a gift to us.
We shouldn’t hold grudges but we do. The pain they caused was too much and so very easy to not forgive. We have 100 + reasons why this person is not worthy to be forgiven.
But Jesus died for everyone and Jesus can forgive all sins. It’s what made Good Friday good.
Have a Good Friday – be willing to let God and Mother Mary walk with you, as you know heaven is possible for everyone. Let Go of anger, let go of resentment, let go of hurt, let go so we may all be at peace.
More reflection necessary!
