WE confess - Good Friday, April 2

Let us pray for all who suffer and are afflicted in body or in mind;
For the hungry and the homeless, the destitute
and the oppressed
For the sick, the wounded, and the crippled
For those in loneliness, fear, and anguish
For those who face temptation, doubt, and despair
For the sorrowful and bereaved
For prisoners and captives, and those in mortal danger
That God in his mercy will comfort and relieve them, and
grant them the knowledge of his love, and stir up in us the
will and patience to minister to their needs.

From the Solemn Collects, Liturgy of Good Friday

• Are we aware that Christ looked at us with this kind of love as he hung on the cross – that he is present upon our altar because he still looks at us in this way?
• How can we see the world with Christ’s eyes, and become his body to show forth God’s love?
