Growing up, we were not allowed to watch TV or listen to music on Good Friday! What were your practices? Do you still abide by them? What new practices and acts of devotion have you and your family made a part of this particularly solemn day?
Learn a little bit about the structure of today’s celebration: Friday of the Passion of the Lord (or Good Friday). This is the only day out of the Church year in which Mass is not celebrated. Today’s celebration is namely comprised of a Liturgy of the Word, the Adoration of the Holy Cross, and Holy Communion.
