Happy Good Friday

Even though our President has confirmed that we are no longer a Christian Nation with Christian principles, a lot of us are still celebrating Good Friday.

Happy and peaceful Easter with your loved ones, enjoy your family as I no longer have mine that was destroyed by exploitation and greed while the authorities that would have been in charge of protecting our elders looked the "other way" calling the abuse a "civil matter" and piling on to cash in on the misery and misfortune of others.

Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Many Christians spend this day in fasting, prayer, repentance, and meditation on the agony and suffering of Christ on the cross. (For a more detailed explanation about Christ's death, see Why Did Jesus Have to Die?)

The biblical account of Jesus' death on the cross, or crucifixion, his burial and his resurrection, or raising from the dead, can be found in the following passages of Scripture: Matthew 27:27-28:8; Mark 15:16-16:19; Luke 23:26-24:35; and John 19:16-20:30.
