GOOD FRIDAY

I will not come down from the cross

As I came out of the house, to enjoy the sun

I found a man who was struggling

With the pain of Crucifixion.

I stop and tell him

‘Permit me to  help you’.

He answered

‘Leave me where I am.

I will not come down from the cross

Until I bring together all my brothers and sisters.

If I detach myself

All peoples will not be united together’.

I ask him

‘What do you want me to do’?

He replied

‘Go to the world

And tell everyone you meet

That there is a man

Who is waiting

 Nailed to the cross.

                                                                                        Bishop Fulton Sheen
