    As most of you know, Good Friday is the day where Jesus Christ, both true man and true God, took the sins of the world with him to the cross and died for each and every one of us because he loves us (John 3:16.)

    The $1,000,000 dollar question is are you sad that he has done so or are you glad?

    Personally, I feel both sad and joyful. I’m sad because I cannot believe that Jesus died for me; A poor, miserable sinner who is undeserving of Our Lord’s love. I am also happy because that through this action, Jesus resurected showing that there is salvation through him and that there is enternal life after death.

    What are your thoughts?

    There is a Latin saying, “O Felix Culpa”, translated “Oh Happy Fault” it means that the sin of Adam, and our own sins gave us proof of God’s great love for us. A love so great that He was willing to lay down His life for us.

    Yes I am happy for what He did for us, and a bit ashamed that I too have added to His agony by my own sins.
