Looking for Good…this Friday

It’s Good Friday.

Perhaps the hardest day of the year.  And, as I try to keep my eyes on him today and prayerfully, quietly, walk through this hard hungry jangled day….I want to remember this:

What Our Savior Saw From the Cross
James Tissot, 1836-1902

He kept his eyes on us.


And, my hope and my joy is that he still does and will.  Forever.

Blessed Good Friday to you on this High Holy Day.

Stations Week 7: Good Friday

Once again, it’s time for the Stations of the Cross.

Every Friday in Lent I’m putting up the link to the Stations of the Cross.
It’s an uber Catholic thing….but then again not.
Anyone can meditate on the Stations of the Cross, and lent is the perfect time to do so. 
It is a rigorous walk, in prayer…and has it’s own hard beauty.
Take a look, read, pray if you are inclined.

This year I’m linking to Pope Benedict’s Stations, the meditations are great.  Go here for the prayers.
