A Good Friday Prayer

Bless you Jesus Christ, Father’s eternal Son, One anointed in the Holy
Spirit, Creator and Sustainer and Redeemer of all things. In
unspeakable humility you crossed all worlds to become one with us, and
submitted yourself this day to be judged and beaten, mocked and
despised, cursed and crucified by the human race, embracing the
hostility of sinners against you, that you could reach us at our
unspeakable worst, thereby bringing all that you are with your Father
in the Holy Spirit together with all that we are in our terrible
darkness and pain. We betrayed and rejected you and you formed them
into the way of our adoption. We despised and cursed you and you formed
them into the temple of the Holy Spirit. Dying in the arms of our scorn
you brought your life into our death, your relationship with your
Father into our miserable destitution, your anointing in the Holy
Spirit into our despair, transforming Adam’s fall into the bosom of
your Father and the world of the Holy Spirit. Bless you Jesus, all
honor and praise and glory to your unspeakable love.
Blessings to all,
Good Friday 2011
