Mangaluru, April 3 : “This holy day marks the slaying of our Lord Jesus, the unblemished lamb that was the perfect sacrifice. He took our guilt and blame upon Himself, only so we could be with Him.”

The Good Friday service in St. Vincent Ferrer Church, Valencia commenced at 6pm on 2nd April 2021 . Father Mullers Medical College Hospital Administrator Fr Rudolph Ravi D’Sa was the chief celebrant with Fr  Roque D’Sa Parish Priest, Fr Lancy DSouza Asst PP and Fr William Barracas as the con-celebrants.

The Passion of Christ was narrated by Fr. William Barracas, Roshan D’Souza, Jessica and the choir members .

Fr. Rudolph in his meaningful homily narrated How Father sent his only son to this and  how he was scourged beyond capacity and died for us.

"When parents see their children reach heights and become successful in life they feel happy, when a teacher sees his / her student get distinction in exams he / she feels happy and the same way when a  Farmer sees good crops grown, he feels very happy. In the same way Jesus gave his life for us and sacrificed  his life for us, because we should live a happy life. We should not be selfish in our journey, we have to always remain happy and helpful in our journey of life. Jesus always forgave his enemies and the people who took his life were forgiven by him. It’s difficult to forgive at times but we should have the spirit of forgiving one another", said Fr Rudolph.

"To earn is human but to forgive is divine. Let the sacrifice of Jesus reflect in our lives and in our community", concluded Fr Rudolph.

Fr Lancy brought the  Crucifix to the altar which was unveiled by Fr Rudolph and Fr Roque step by step with respect and adored the Crucified Christ. The faithful paid respect to the Crucified Christ Crucifix.
