Good Friday

Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. It is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday. Good Friday is a day of solemn reflection and mourning for Christians around the world, as they remember the sacrifice Jesus made for the redemption of humanity’s sins according to Christian belief.

Traditionally, Good Friday services may include scripture readings, hymns, prayers, and reflections on the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion. Many Christians observe fasting and abstinence on this day as a form of penance and reflection.

Despite its somber tone, Good Friday is also seen as a day of hope and redemption, as it marks the beginning of the Easter weekend, which culminates in the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday, symbolizing victory over sin and death.
