Catholic Church Prayer

Good Friday

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his wounds we were healed.”           Isaiah 53:5

It is hard to believe another Good Friday is here.  It’s a beautiful day in my area, and I’ve just come back from a walk.    I’ll be heading off to church a bit later, but I sometimes feel like just getting out in nature helps me clear my mind before a long service.

Actually, I really needed that walk to decompress a bit.  I started classes this week, and there was a ton of reading to do.  Since this leg of my classes are all on-line, there were posts to get up, in addition to pouring over several books and pdf documents.

Someone recently asked me how I plan to get everything done.  Well, the first part of my answer was about prayer.  My prayer life has been really good lately, and I sense that as long as I keep that consistent, the rest will all fall into place.

Speaking of prayer, I hope you’ll take some time today to reflect on the epic events that took place in the Holy Land some 2,000 years ago.  No matter what you’re dealing with, whether it be on-line courses, relationship, financial or addiction issues, or maybe just getting older, today is a perfect day to pause for a bit and thank God for everything he has done for you.

I'm passionate about helping people realize that God wants to make something new of them and bring about a permanent transformation in their lives: body, mind, and spirit.
