On Good Friday, PM Modi Remembers Jesus Christ's 'Profound Sacrifice'

New Delhi: Speaking of the great sacrifice made by Jesus Christ on Good Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that everyone may learn compassion and forgiveness from it.

Good Friday serves as a reminder of the great sacrifice made by Jesus Christ. Prime Minister Modi wrote on X, "May everyone find strength in the lessons of compassion and forgiveness it teaches us."

Prayers and processions across the country representing the "stations of the cross" honor the sorrowful anniversary of Good Friday.

In Kerala, believers march to Saint Joseph's Cathedral in Palayam holding wooden crosses that represent Jesus Christ's crucifixion. Good Friday services are being held in churches all around the state to commemorate the crucifixion of Christ and to count down to Easter Sunday.

The nation's capital's Sacred Heart Cathedral Church also hosted prayers.

The meaning of 'Good Friday' for Christians was explained by Father Jolly of the Catholic Bishops Conference of India (CBCI Centre), which has its headquarters in Delhi.

Father Jolly told ANI that Christians worldwide commemorate the suffering and demise of their beloved Lord Jesus Christ on Good Friday. Today serves as a remembrance day where we can reflect on Christ's suffering and death on the cross.

He remarked that by maintaining this memorial, we sanctify our homes, ourselves, and our hearts and thoughts in order to unite our lives with the life of Christ.

On Good Friday, we read the verses from the holy books that describe the suffering and demise of our beloved Lord Jesus. He said, "We also honor the cross today and reflect on Christ's sufferings."

The'stations of the cross' procession from Thiruvananthapuram to Saint Joseph's Cathedral in Palayam was attended by devotees.

In observance of Good Friday, members of the Christian community also conducted a procession from the Mother House to Saint Teresa's Church in Kolkata, where they said prayers.

The'stations of the cross' commemorate the agony that Christ endured on Good Friday during his execution.

The narrative of "Good Friday" centers on the day that the Romans crucified Jesus. Judas, a follower of Jesus, betrayed him, which resulted in the Romans taking him prisoner.

Jesus was put to death by command of Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea at the time. Jesus was forced to carry his cross from Jerusalem to Calvary, the site of his crucifixion.

The holiday known as "Easter," which commemorates the occurrence of Jesus' resurrection on the third day following his crucifixion, comes after "Good Friday."
