Good Friday celebration at Milagres Church, Mangaluru
Mangaluru: Good Friday a day to remember the passion and death of our Saviour. Our Lord endured all the pain even unto death on the cross, to redeem us from slavery to sin.
It’s a day we Christians across the world deeply reflect on the love of God for his children. The scripture says “for God so loved the world that He gave His only son that whosoever believes in him may have eternal life” (Jn 3:16). This love is proved on the cross a stumbling block for some and shame for some others.
The devotion of the way of the cross is a medium to help us to walk with our Lord in his last moments here on earth. It reminds us of the harrowing time between His last supper and death on the cross. Most Christians devoutly take part in this devotion, especially on Good Friday, praying and walking with the Lord.
The parishioners of Milagres celebrated this devotion in the early hours of the day. Fr Ivan D’Souza the assistant parish priest, assisted by the parishioners led the way of the cross and led people in prayer. The liturgical service of the Lords passion will be celebrated in the evening.
