What is Good Friday?

In this worship, the crucifix is unveiled in three stages. Since there is no consecration in this celebration, communion is distributed with consecrated hosts during the Mass of Holy Thursday. ;

During this day?s liturgy, Catholics pray especially for the Church, the pope, priests as well as those who profess to other religions.

It?s also customary to pray the Via Crucis on this day, which literally means “the way of the cross.” It follows the 14 different scenes that Jesus passed through until his death.
