In the South all of creation is proclaiming Easter! Resurrection is in bloom. But before spring we went through winter and Good Friday comes before Easter.
When I was little I remember asking my mother why the day Jesus died was called “Good Friday.” I couldn’t understand why the day Jesus was crucified would be called “good.”
An old BC cartoon captured the idea with something like, “If you were sentenced to die and someone volunteered to take your place, what would you call it?” “Good” becomes a mild adjective in that context.
