What happened during those 3 hours on the cross?
Today is the most somber and holy time of the church year, Good Friday, the day that Jesus Died. What happened on the cross? What was going through His mind? He had the power to remove himself from this pain but chose not to.
“The Three Hours' Agony" or Tre Ore refers to the three hours that Jesus hung on the Cross. While hanging there, he utters 7 final phrases (aka 7 last words). Each one holds an immense amount of weight as they are the last spoken by Christ. Click the video below to enter into the liturgy of Good Friday and the last words of Christ.
As we reflect on the last seven words of Christ, let us enter into the silence that came with that seventh word. How can you carry the silence of Christ into the weekend until Easter? Whether this is a literal silence or only an interior silence, consider some ways to quiet the noise in your life.
