Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Good Friday

Forgiveness is the most visible sign of the Father’s love, which Jesus sought to reveal by his entire life. Every page of the Gospel is marked by this imperative of a love that loves to the point of forgiveness. Even at the last moment of his earthly life, as he was being nailed to the cross, Jesus spoke words of forgiveness: ‘Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do’ (Lk 23:34).” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Take few moments to contemplate the depth of Jesus’ love: In the midst of his intense suffering, he acted for the good of friends and enemies alike. What kind of sacrifices do you make for the good of those you love? When was the last time you made a selfless sacrifice for someone with whom you do not have a good relationship, especially a person who inflicts pain on you? How does sacrificing for others draw you closer to Jesus Christ, the Suffering Servant?
