Since this Good Friday will be unlike any we’ve spent before, how will you be celebrating?
Good Friday marks the day on which Christians around the world commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The religious observance takes place during Holy Week, a couple of days before Easter Sunday.
Usually, in several sectors of Christianity, including eastern Orthodox, Anglican and Catholic, Good Friday is observed by some Christians by attending church services and by fasting. However, attending churches this year will not be possible as places of worship are closed.
Days like these, spent in an entirely different way from how you usually spend them, can be difficult to comprehend. But thankfully, we have technology to keep us closer than ever to our loved ones, no matter if they’re on the opposite side of the world, or minutes away, they can be right there with us virtually. Sharing smiles and laughter.
We’ll get though these times and appreciate the loved ones in our lives even more than before. And we might even show them more, as the pandemic has made us realise that life could change at any moment. So never take it, or sharing blissful moments together for granted.
So I wonder, how are you spending yours? Will you be having a nice dinner and video-calling all of your loved ones during your meal to reenact your usual Good Friday’s? Will you be consuming the traditional seafood in line with Canon law (Christian law)? Are you participating in the Friday Feast? What’s your Good Friday consisted of so far? Have you live streamed any church services? Comment below and have a blessed Good Friday to all those who observe this holiday!
