"The Crucifixion" Tintoretto, 1565
As the Christian world observes Friday of the Passion of the Lord, or Good Friday, the Catholic Apostolate Center invites you to pray and reflect on this most holy day.
(Taken from the Liturgy of the Hours)
Today we lovingly remember the death of our Lord Jesus Christ, from which was born new life for the whole world. Let us turn to God the Father, and say: By the merits of your Son’s death, hear us, Lord.
Give unity to your Church.
Protect Francis, our Pope.
Sanctify your people, both clergy and faithful, by your Spirit.
Increase faith and understanding in those under instruction.
Gather all Christians in unity.
Lead the Jewish people to the fullness of redemption.
Enlighten with your glory those who do not yet believe in Christ.
Show the marks of your love in creation to those who deny them.
Guide the minds and hearts of those who govern us.
Console all who are troubles.
Have pity on those who have died.
