Tears, Good Friday of the Lord's Passion

I am so very grateful to Esther for her reminder that today starts the Novena for Divine Mercy which is available
here .






God longs for the tears of criminals; He thirsts for the tears of sinners.

St. John Chrysostom

Micki, the most poignant of cards during this triduum period of our Lord - thank you. I stop by your site from time to time to enjoy reading your visitors comments and to enjoy the cards - very inspirational for a new elect on my journey hoping to participate in the sacrament for the first time tomorrow. For anyone interested you can view online The Passion enacted in series: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/page/item/b009kcs6.shtml?src=ip_potpw

Wow, what a card and thought...I posted the quote to my LampStand website at http://www.lampstandfoundation.org/guidingprinciples.html ...so appropriate.

Thanks again for finding and posting these wonderful thoughts and cards.

The perfect card to gaze on in meditation today. Just look at the sorrow on Mary's face.
Thankyou, Micki, also for the wonderful quote today which gives hope for each and every one of us.

P.S. Welcome Karl! Jesus loves you sooo dearly!

Karl,
I come here to gaze upon the loveliness of God through Micki's beautiful Holy Cards. I am so happy to "see" you here. I will have special prayers for you this Easter Triduum, especially today as our church celebrates the passion and death of Jesus, and claim his victory for you. I am so glad I came today, dear brother in Christ. I await good news from you.

Dearest Micki,
My love to you this Easter Triduum and prayers as well. In my morning walk today, I remembered you and I smiled.

God's blessings to you,
Easter

Karl - I will be keeping you in prayer tomorrow evening and asking our Lord to welcome you for all of us here in blogdom. Grace upon grace is coming your way.

I tried to see the Passion you suggested but it said that it is only available to UK people. :-(

David - We remember all those in jails, guilty and innocent every Tuesday morning in my Prayer Group. Thank you for visiting here.

D.S. - Yes, "sorrow" is the word for today....hard to imagine the day being called "Good."

J - Thank you for calling on our "Sorrowful Mother"...so often her agony is forgotten.

Easter - Thank you again for making me "smile" too. Such good "unseen" friends here on the blogs.

I so agree with David: "Wow". Thank you Micki.

My daughter and I will be off to London tomorrow for a few days staying with friends. I will miss looking in on my beloved holy card site and the uplifting inspiration it gives me, but I wish you all the most blessed of Easters.
My Very Best Regards, Lynneda
