Today, April 23, is Good Friday,
the Friday before Easter and the
anniversary of the Crucifixion.
Good Friday, probably once
known as “God’s Friday” is a
day of suffering. It is a day on
which Christians meditate upon the
sacrifice of the Cross. It is a day
on which Christians are bade, no
matter to what extent their own
sorrows may go, to study the final
sorrow and pain of Christ, who
was put to death under the edict
of Pontius Pilate following the ac
cusations of his fellow men.
The origin of Good Friday cele
bration is somewhat obscure. It
may be regarded as certain that
among Jewish Christians it almost
imperceptibly grew out of the old
habit of annually celebrating the
Passover on the 14th of Nisan,
and of observing the “days of un
leavened bread” from the 15th to
the 21st of the month. In the Gen
tile churches, on the other hand,
it seems to be well established
that originally no yearly cycle of
festivals was known at all.
From the very earliest times,
Good Friday was marked by a
specially rigorous fast, and a
greater simplicity in the services
of the church. Prior to the fourth
century, there is no evidence of
non-celebration of the eucharist on
Good Friday; after that date pro
hibition of communion became
common. In Spain, it even be
came customary to close the
churches as a sign of mourning
on the day. But this practice was
condemned by the council of To
ledo in 633.
In the Roman Catholic Church,
the Good Friday ritual observed
I at present is marked by many
; special features. Most of these
: can be traced back to a date at
least prior to the close of the
eighth century. The Catholic altar
and officiating clergy are draped
in black; and the gospel for the
day consists of the history of the
Passion, as recorded by St. John,
often sung in plain-chant. There
are bidding prayers for the peace
and unity of the church, the pope,
the clergy, and all ranks and con
ditions of men. Then follows the
“adoration of the cross.”
In the Church of England, t.re
history of the Passion from the
gospel according to St. John is
also read; the collects for the day
are based upon the bidding pray
ers which are found in the Ordo
Often to be found in churches
today are “three hours” services,
borrowed from Roman Catholic
usage, and consisting of prayers,
addresses on “seven last words
from the cross and intervals of
meditation and silent prayer.
The Good Friday story is clearly
beginning: “Then Pilate therefore
took Jesus and scourged him. And
the soldiers _ plaited a crown of
thorns and put it on his head.”
The climax of the story: “Pilate
saith unto them, Shall I crucify
your King? The chief priests an
swered, We have no king but
Caesar. Then therefore he deliv
ered him unto them to be cru
The beginning of the denouement
reads: “After this Jesus, knowing
that all things are now finished,
that the scripture might be ac
complished, saith, I thirst. There
was set there a vessel full of vin
egar upon hyssop, and brought it
to his mouth. When Jesus there
fore had received the vinegar, he
said, It is finished: and he bowed
his head and gave up his spirit.”
The ending of the Good Friday
story: ‘‘Now in the place where
he was crucified there was a gar
den; and in the garden a new
tomb wherein was never man yet
laid. There then because of the
Jews’ Preparation (for the tomb
was nigh at hand) they laid Je
