REFLECTIONS ON THE CROSS

The high point in the liturgy of the church throughout the year is the Holy Eucharist. But only once a year, the liturgy is not centered on the Sacrament but on the event. This day is Good Friday, when mass is not celebrated but we contemplate and adore only the Cross. From the fourth century onwards, there have been services for the adoration of the Cross on Good Friday , and these were destined to have a very positive influence on the faith and worship of Christians throughout the centuries . This is the day when “ the mystery of the Cross shines out” (Raniero Cantalamessa). Read more
