Our meditation for Good Friday is a series of six reflections based on the Gospel accounts of the last hours of Jesus’s life:
Each reflection is accompanied by an image (see all images below) and a piece of music, to help you enter into the sensations and emotions of the protagonists of Christ’s final hours, and allow these to deepen your relationship with, and love for, him.
We would of course normally be together in one of our churches, to participate in a time of meditation on Christ’s Passion, between the hours of 2 and 3pm – his last hour on the cross. We’re only-too-aware that such a gathering is not possible today.
I’m afraid that we’ve also, following a re-emphasis of Coronavirus guidelines from our Diocese, had to shelve our plans to share in a Home Communion, as I’d previously indicated we would do. I’m sorry that this is the case, but I hope you can understand that it’s imperative that we follow instructions precisely, to minimise risks to us all.
Nevertheless, in this strange time when our sense of the importance of connections is heightened, it’s my prayer that this Good Friday, you will feel more closely than ever the presence of Jesus in your life, and that you will have a renewed sense of our shared fellowship in Christ.
Best wishes, stay safe, and God bless,
