Joyful Sorrow

Joyful sorrow is the best way to describe Holy and Great Friday. In the morning we commemorated the Royal Hours of Christ on the Cross and in the afternoon we buried God in a tomb. YES we buried God! This is why we are both sorrowful and joyful. We have sorrow that God had to die for our salvation. We are joyful because in reality He didn’t HAVE to die but did so willingly. He died so that we might have life and have it abundantly. We have ultimate joy and hope in the Resurrected God who has conquered all death and all suffering for all time. Thank you God for our life. If you know of someone who is suffering this year, bring them this message of hope in the Resurrected Lord.
