GOOD FRIDAY


GOOD FRIDAY

It has been seen that the incarnations of our Creator had to endure trials and tribulations in their lives while living on this earth. They presented a living example for us humans to see how best they withstood onslaughts of those who opposed the very idea of departure from their pseudo and outdated beliefs. These incarnations faced hurdles at every step but with their foresights and fortitude these Apostles of Peace challenged the old and hackneyed mores of behaviour and came out unscathed ultimately.

Lord Jesus Christ is one example amongst others like Lord Krishna, Lord Rama who gave new meaning and content to the philosophy of living. These Messengers of Peace fought for the common people and were able to rid the society of the evil doers and challenged the very philosophies of people at the helm of affairs in periods of time. In that process these Sons of God had to face opposition. But in their death even they gave a new meaning of life to us humans to follow. Their ideals and preachings are held dear by us all and will remain so till eternity.

GOOD FRIDAY

A Friday within Holy Week,
Call it a Good Friday or a Great Friday,
No strings attached whatsoever,
A day long penance and fasting observed without fail,
This Day is commemorated as an anniversary,
Of death of our revered Christ,
But this Day’s purity remains doubtlessly intact.

A Day which we reminiscence,
When our beloved Lord Jesus Christ,
Offered himself on the cross,
Without even a slightest emotional upsurge,
Peaceful in real life
And serene whilst embracing death so certain.

Underwent crucification and ultimate surrender,
To Him on this Day,
Suffering pangs in the process for us.

A holy death,
His supreme sacrifice is an instrument of compensation,
For the sins of every one.

AND followed by a mystical resurrection,
To stun the people at large by His deed.

Methods differ,
To observe the holiness of Good Friday,
Devout kneel with utmost reverence,
Before wooden Cross kept in Churches so holy.

Seven last words of Christ are too repeated,
So that HIS utterances remain carved,
In our memory lane for ever.

A symbolic burial of the Lord too is performed,
Different may be the methods,
Yet inner most welling of touching feeling is unparalleled,
For the Beloved Jesus Christ,
Who for Truth’s sake gave His everything,
So that we may be absolved of our sins.

  8. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on Good Friday 1865. In college I did an essay linking him as a secular Christ figure for the nation and as martyr for the sin of slavery which he attempted to end only to be murdered by a gun not a cross. The professor gave me an F saying the idea was preposterous. I though it was quite original and sensible. Another reason I changed my major from English to history. Ironically, the history professor gave me an A for the same essay.

  9. Third Flower My spouse and that i are now delighted that Albert could perform his scientific tests due to the suggestions he had via your web site. It truly is from time to time perplexing to simply often be gifting away measures which a number of people could have been selling. So we absolutely grasp we’ve bought you for being grateful to for that. The majority of the explanations you manufactured, the easy weblog navigation, the relationships you help to instill it is actually mostly outstanding, and it is aiding our son and us believe that that write-up is entertaining, and that is unbelievably crucial. Thanks for all!

    1. I really do not know from where these thoughts emanate. May be it is all due to CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS. Sometimes, I too take a peep at my own blog writings for my enlightenment. Really. Tall words but it is a fact. I remain always grounded. Just simple in every way under the sun. If it helps, it is an added advantage to me to explore my latent i- inner being for the gifts he has provided me surreptitiously – I do not know myself even!

      Such are the bounties of our LORD.

      May God be with us all.

  10. on Saturday, Feb. For now, let’s enjoy the rest of the trading
    day and see how the week closes. Itinakda rin
    sa utos na walang kinakailangang maaksayang gastusin sa pagtatapos, gaya ng magardong kasuotan at nirentahang pagdarausan ng seremonya.
    So it is with the Mind of the Buddha and of sentient
    beings. This is only act for now.If you not happy with
    each other why do pics anyway.
