GOOD FRIDAY (Mandatory fast and abstinence)

 GOOD FRIDAY (Mandatory fast and abstinence)

This day is for you to cry out for mercy for yourself and the entire human race. On Good Friday you should participate in Christ’s funeral by hearing to the Gospel of the Passion and the Seven Words, which are the last guidelines that Christ, our Redeemer, gave us.

Confess this day all your iniquities, cleanse your soul from the leprosy of sin with the Blood of Christ, participate in the Passion of your Savior, so that one day you may share His Victory.

Christ suffered on Good Friday to set you free from sin, which is the most terrible cancer, and from Hell, the greatest misfortune.

And you are thinking of going on holiday like so many other Neo-Pagans, perhaps to die in the road of ingratitude!

On Good Friday you should follow the Way of the Cross, meditate on what your Lord suffered for you to realize what sin deserves. Read the last chapters of Matthew, Luke or John, or watch the movie The Passion of the Christ by Mel Gibson, to help you understand the price Christ paid to set you free from the power of sin and the devil in order to make you a son of God.

Good Friday is a day of abstinence, fast and penance; silence and tears; mourning and grief; and not a day to spend it on the beach, surrounded by pleasures and diversions (neither licit nor illicit).
