Beautiful thoughts on Good Friday from Fr. Robert Johansen

“Before I became a priest, or even entered seminary, the Good Friday liturgy was always one of my favorites. After my first experience of the Good Friday service, I rarely missed it. Even in those times when I wasn’t exactly practicing my faith very well, Good Friday seemed to always call me back.”

His entire piece is very good. He uses the text of the Reproaches as the starting point. But how many parishes will even hear the Reproaches tonight?
