Brothers and Sisters in Christ!
The hour has come when we remember how Our Master, after having instituted the Sacrament of Love - the Eucharist -, was betrayed and handed over to sinners to be whipped, beaten, and crucified. The entire life of Our Savior existed for this moment - the moment when His death redeemed the entire Human race.
In love unutterable for us, in torments, He died.
Today has always been, and still remains, a day of mandatory Fasting and Abstinence (Canon 1251). Also worth noting, upon entering our pews today, we are to genuflect to the Crucifix not the tabernacle because the Eucharist is not present today in any Tabernacle in the world (Source: GIRM 274).
Remember His love for you especially between 9 AM and 3 PM, the time of His agony. Between 12 Noon and 3 PM specifically pray because that is the time when He hung on the cross. Pray! Join me in the Litany of the Passion and the Sorrowful mysteries of the Rosary. Pray the Stations of the Cross today at your parish or at home around 3 PM. Likewise, meditate on Our Lady of Sorrows today as well.
Concerning the Stations of the Cross, there are many cities in the United States taking part in processions and acting out Jesus's journey to Calvary to die.
Please join me now in praying a Good Friday Hymn also. And attend Good Friday Service tonight. There is no Mass anywhere in the world on Good Friday, but there is a service to commemorate Jesus's Sacrifice on the Cross. And there is a plenary indulgence available:
"A plenary indulgence is granted to the faithful, who in the solemn liturgical action of Good Friday devoutly assist at the adoration of the Cross and kiss it" (Source)
The Good Friday Prayer:
"O, my Lord Jesus, I hereby beg of Thee, by the merits of Thy Precious Blood, by Thy Divine Heart, and by the intercession of Thy Most Holy Death to assist me in this pressing necessity."
(To be said 33 times for each intention. It must be said between the hours of 12 noon and 3 PM on Good Friday)
(Pope Pius IX declared that by reciting this above prayer 5 times on Friday, we release 5 souls from Purgatory and we release 33 souls from Purgatory by reciting it on Good Friday. This prayer should be recited before a Crucifix, with a contrite heart and praying a few moments for the Pope.)
