Today is Good Friday. Today, we honor the moment when Jesus laid down his life for us, to forgive our sins and to open the gates of heaven once more.
Here is a short prayer for today.
Let Us Fast
While fasting with the body,
brothers and sisters,
let us also fast in spirit.
Let us loose every bond of iniquity;
let us undo the knots of every contact
made by violence;
let us tear up all unjust agreements;
let us give bread to the hungry
and welcome to our house
the poor who have no roof to cover them,
that we may receive mercy from
Christ our God.
