Homily for Good Friday

On Good Friday we hear just how God has reversed our woeful predicament of sin and death by giving His only-begotten up to the death of the cross. On this day we hear the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. John (chapters 18-19), and here at Hope we got to hear it sung with the magnificent choral setting by Carl Schalk. In addition to pondering our Lord's Passion, we also hear what it means for us in the words of St. Paul: "For our sake [God] made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:21).

Good Friday's homily this year is titled "Great Reversal."
