Good Friday: A day to remember those facing injustice, oppression

Tomorrow is Good Friday, when Christians solemnly commemorate the day Jesus suffered and died on the cross.

In some churches, a wooden cross is set up and people spend time meditating before it. Other people make the Stations of the Cross, a devotion that recalls the journey of Jesus on the Via Dolorosa (Way of Sorrows) in Jerusalem to Calvary, where he was crucified.

Many Christians keep this devotion but also see in the suffering of Jesus a reminder to be more concerned for the suffering of people in today’s world – those facing injustice and oppression. For many Christians, Good Friday is also a day of fasting and penance.

Los Angeles Archbishop José H. Gomez will preside at the Celebration of the Passion of the Lord at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels at noon.
