An Emotional Good Friday 2013

I went to our parish Good Friday Service at 5.00pm this evening.  

I was not having a particularly good day  and on my way to church, I realized that this always happens to me on Good Friday. 

I came away from the service feeling  so much better.  The hymns for this day are so powerful and I have to admit that I shed a tear or two when we sang 'The Old Rugged Cross' which when I was growing up, was not associated with Roman Catholics. I remembered today how my father and I would tend to take the mickey somewhat whenever we heard it - normally being sung by the Salvation Army on a street corner somewhere.

I was not only weeping for Him who came to save us but for my father who I still miss to this day. I think I was also weeping for those who have turned my religion into something it was not meant to be.

Quite an emotional day all round really!
