Good Friday morning, my friends. Actually, it is literally Good Friday morning! Today is the day we remember Jesus' crucifixion and death upon the cross as Catholics. The darkness of this photo I snapped this morning seems symbolic of that day so long ago. We will fast and abstain today and pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.
Sunday, we celebrate Easter! I took this photo this morning as well and was struck by the symbolism of its light and brightness. If the first photo represents the sorrow of Good Friday, this one represents the light and joy of Easter, when Jesus rose from the dead, triumphing over death and granting us eternal life. We will commemorate Easter with the celebration of mass, most likely on Saturday evening, known as the Easter Vigil. Then Sunday morning, we will enjoy an Easter brunch together before seeing what the Easter Bunny left! And yes. The Easter Bunny still visits our house because one is never too old for the magic and fun of tradition.
Happy and Blessed Easter, my friends.
And if you do not celebrate Easter, I wish you a happy and cozy weekend.
See you here on Monday!
Thanks for visiting. I am always glad you do.
