Moving Meditations for Lent | Day 39: Good Friday

Darkness. While called a "celebration" and with the adjective "good," Good Friday is filled with darkness. We celebrate the torture and death of man who promoted nothing but love and kindness. A man who died at the hands of a vengeful group of men in power. This is a low point in our liturgical year, … Continue reading Moving Meditations for Lent | Day 39: Good Friday

Moving Meditations for Lent | Day 38: Holy Thursday 

Holy Thursday, also the Feast of the Holy Eucharist. On this day, Jesus shares His Last Supper with the Twelve Apostles, where He breaks bread with them and also washes their feet.

Moving Meditations for Lent | Day 33: “It is finished”

​​ "It is finished." John 19:30 . Jesus speaks about eternal life many times. He even states that He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
