Good Friday, 2016


There appears to be some dispute about why the day that commemorates the death of Jesus Christ carries the name “Good Friday” in English. One view is that it is good in the sense of being Holy. Another is that the “good” is a derivative of “God,” in the same way that “goodbye” derives from “God be with ye.” Either way, the day gives me a chance to reflect.

We reflected a bit outside the Cathedral of Valencia this afternoon, though not at all inside; despite it seeming a likely day to be able to spend some time within, the doors were shut tight. We’re going to the Poblats Marítims tonight to see a procession of the Holy Burial. I haven’t seen it before, so I’m not sure what to expect. I’ll keep you posted.

The most valuable reflection generally comes separate from public pageantry. I share this short video as a good way to get things started.
