A “Good Friday” of hope

Dear Friends

Good Friday invites us to reflect on the sacrifice Christ made for us through his crucifixion, death and resurrection. I like to think of it not just as an historical event but also as a symbolic representation of the suffering and injustices that persist in society today, prompting us to confront the ‘crucifixions’ of our time. To consider the systemic oppressions, the marginalisations, the inequalities and all the things that afflict individuals and communities around the globe today.

Yet, Good Friday should not only be a day of reflection and introspection; it should be a day of hope. Just as the crucifixion is followed by the resurrection, so too does Good Friday remind us that even in the midst of suffering and despair, there is the potential for renewal and transformation.

We live in a world marked by both profound challenges but also with incredible opportunities. Good Friday serves as a reminder that no matter how dark the night may seem, the dawn of a new day is always on the horizon. It calls us to embrace the possibility of redemption and to work towards creating a future where love, justice and compassion reign supreme.

On behalf of our Schoenstatt Fathers I wish everyone a blessed Easter with just maybe a little bit of chocolate!
