Friday is a dark day, but the light of Christ shines brightly from the empty tomb on Easter Sunday.
Thank the Lord for the cross, where Christ bore our sins. Where Christ paid it all – tetelestai, it is finished!
When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. Now when the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent!” And all the crowds that had assembled for this spectacle, when they saw what had taken place, returned home beating their breasts. And all his acquaintances and the women who had followed him from Galilee stood at a distance watching these things.
