Good Friday

By your holy cross you have redeemed us

"Jesus cried, 'Eli, Eli, lama sabachtani?' that is, 'My God, My God' why hast Thou forsaken Me? once more, uttering a loud cry, Jesus gave up his spirit." Matthew 27:50

"When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who was also a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus; then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. So Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth.......

...and laid it in his own tomb, which he had hewn in the rock. He then rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb and went away." Matthew 27:57-59

"Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were there, sitting opposite the tomb." Matthew 27:61
