SAINT ELIZABETH SETON CHURCH
APRIL 2, 2021
On Good Friday two symbols that take a central place are 1) The Veneration of the Cross, and 2) our offering of Intercessory Prayer for the whole world. On Good Friday, we hear again the reading of the Passion narrative. After the homily, a large cross is brought forward on which hung the Savior of the World. “Come, let us worship.” We offer our prayers of intercession at the foot of the cross, asking that all of our prayers be offered in the name of the One “who lives to make intercession for us: Jesus, Our Lord”. Then we come forward with reverence to Venerate that cross… as we genuflect or bow before it, touch or kiss the Cross, we acknowledge the power of the saving love of Christ that has triumphed over death, redeemed us, and we acknowledge also, our mission as the Body of Christ: to “make up what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ”.
