Good Friday


Today is Good Friday, when the Lord our savior died on the cross for our sins. He died for US and for the Glory of God. Man’s glory is that of power through manipulation. Jesus died on the cross at 3:00 PM, it is said if we honor the hour with the Three O’clock prayer to the Divine Mercy, our petitions will be heard!
“You expired, O Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls and an ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us. O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You. Amen”
We need to get our priorities right, the world is now fixed on material wealth and power. It’s not about US, we need to do what is right! Easier said that done, right? I remember when I was about 13 years old on a Good Friday, my dear Grandmother explained to me that this was a day for prayer, not to play music, and basically a day reserved to remember what Christ did for us. I laughed it off as hocus-pocus and went out full of myself to play basketball at the park hooting and hollering. Several hours later I was in the ER with a broken arm. When I got home I got an ear full from my Grandmother and other family members about honor and dignity. How I could not simply honor Our Lord, who was CRUCIFIED for US? Selfish I was and still am!
My dear Lord, we honor you this day for your endless sacrifice!
How many have sacrificed for Cuba’s FREEDOM in a dignified way? We ask that Cuba one day will be resurrected!
God bless my family, friends, and my FREEDOM loving brethren!
