Not a sorrowful day. A triumphant day! That's why on this day for centuries we have used John's Passion account. From beginning to end Jesus is in charge, "I lay down my life and I take it up again; no one takes it from me." Suffering and evil have no real power over God's Son nor over us whom he has made God's sons and daughters. That's why this Friday is "Good." We have a savior we can count on.
