What Good Friday Means to Devout Christians

Wednesday April 16, 2014

The Passion story of Jesus Christ moves devout Christians to tears. It is common to see people wailing at the altar of Jesus Christ, atoning for their sins. People reenact the scenes from the Gospels on the day of Good Friday. In Philippines, many devotees voluntarily get crucified on the cross, reliving every last detail of Jesus Christ's grisly end. In 2013, a carpenter named Ruben Enaje volunteered to get nailed to the cross for the 27th year in a row. He promises to continue doing so. Several devotees also voluntarily flog themselves with iron nails, and wear a crown of nails, to show their deep love for Christ.

Though such brutal acts of devotion are discouraged by the Vatican, you can't help admiring the power of faith and its effect on people. Good Friday holds a special place in many a Christian heart, and if channeled well, this can bring about a spiritual awakening in the collective conscious of our society.

Let us make Good Friday a day to cleanse our souls. If you are a practicing Christian, you will find spiritual satisfaction in these Good Friday Bible quotes. Share these quotes with your friends and family on Good Friday and make your holiday a memorable day.

Are Passover Traditions Still Followed?

Passover traditions have seen many changes over time. Religious texts lay down a strict code to be followed by Jews observing Passover. But passage of time and the influence of other cultures have changed some of the original rituals of Passover.

Is this a bad sign? Is Passover no longer being celebrated as an important Jewish holiday? Studies have shown that with the changing traditions, more Jewish families participate in Passover celebration. Old traditions such as the breaking of the middle matzoh, the rituals of the seder, and the retelling of the Haggadah, continue even today.

Some families include the Passover scavenger hunt to add an element of fun for kids. Children enjoy participating in the rituals, and enacting the scenes from the Exodus. This Passover, make your celebrations come alive by marrying old customs with new ideas. These Passover quotes can add a delightful touch to your celebrations. Share them with friends and family, and make your day a kosher Happy Pesach!
