Thoughts on Good Friday

It's a dark and gloomy day here in Indianapolis, rather appropriate for a day when we remember the Crucifixion.

I'm listening to the Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack. I forgot how good the music is, and it does get the point of the Gospels across. Need to see if the local video store has it.

Today is a day of fasting and abstinence. Not like skipping a meal or two is gonna do me any harm, and there have been days when I've been so busy with something that I've forgotten to eat, but actually being told not to eat as a form of penance makes the empty stomach a little more noticable.

During the time that I would normally go out to lunch, I will be praying a Rosary in unison with Catholics throughout the world, and at 3pm, the time when Christ gave up his life, I will pause for a moment of silence.

I remember entering the Catholic Church three years ago this weekend (give or take a day), and the onrush of grace and love was incredible. That fire has burned bright at times, dim at others, but it has lit my way and warmed my heart ever since. As much as I felt my devotion wavering over the past few weeks, it's gonna get a serious booster shot this weekend, and I pray that the fire is rekindled.
