Why is it that we call the day after Thanksgiving "Black Friday" and everyone who was so busy being thankful the day before runs out to consume, consume, consume?
Do people flock to Mass on Good Friday to mourn the death of Jesus?
Doesn't this seemed wrong that we will shop and celebrate "Black Friday" and give so little thought to Good Friday; the day Our Lord died for our sins?
For me, Good Friday is more like Black Friday. I drape a black cloth in my home and outside on my porch.
I guess the point I am trying to make is that our society has turned a shopping event into something more important than the death of Jesus.
As we enter into Advent, may we all focus on the gift Our Father gave us--His Son.
As we progress through Advent, may we focus our hearts, souls, and minds on Jesus that as well come to Lent we will be able to see Good Friday as "Black Friday" and mourn for Our Lord so that on Easter Sunday we can Rejoice for the gift of the Resurrection.
Jesus died for our sins! Could we repay Him by making Him the center of our lives? Could we repay Him by working to save the unborn?
Blessed be God Forever!
