Passion of The Lord I Good Friday

 

Since ancient tradition, Mass is not celebrated on Good Friday. Instead, there is a special service in remembrance of The Lord's passion where faithful contemplate the saving passion and death of Jesus Christ. Faithful adore and kiss the cross on which blood was shed for the forgiveness of sins. Below are photographs from St. Matthew Catholic Church and St. Joseph Vietnamese Catholic Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.
