FRI 19-APR-2019 - Good Friday Reflection
Rev Sandy Boyce
Good Friday – Parallels are drawn between the horror and shock of watching the recent fire that destroyed part of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, built 850 years ago as a symbol of the body of Christ, and the horror and shock of the early disciples watching Jesus dying, nailed to a cross. When Jesus told his beloved disciple that Mary was now his mother, she became the mother of us all – Our Lady, or in the French language, Notre Dame. We await new life rising from the ashes, but let us mourn a great loss before looking for the new. Even death cannot suppress the irrepressible energy of God's presence. Love will rise from the ashes to greet a new day.
