The Friday before Easter is widely and commonly known as Good Friday, by all other Christians, including Catholics. While Easter Sunday is a wonderful day of great celebration of the resurrection of the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Good Friday is a more solemn day, where we remember Jesus’ sufferings with the Stations of the Cross, culminating in his crucifixion. This journey to his execution is known as, the Passion. A day of fasting in the church, Good Friday is a time for reflection of our own sins and how Jesus “suffered death and was buried” for them.
While Good Friday is a day of solemn reflection and sacrifice in fasting, without this, Jesus would not have been able to rise “again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.” Celebrate this most holy of weekends in the Christian religion with some of our wonderful pieces of Catholic Jewelry and Catholic Décor.
