On this holy day, we remember you Jesus; as you suffered excruciating pain and a cruel death; which you freely chose in love for the whole human race to forgive their sin and promise life eternal. Today we also remember our participation in your suffering and death; we are equally as guilty as all of those who participated in sending you to the cross. Today we also remember that you continue to suffer with the whole human race as many have died and will die of the coronavirus. May everyone find strength by turning to you in order to cope with the life-threatening circumstances in which we face. May we live with resurrection hope that there will be life beyond COVID-19; just as your resurrection gives hope beyond the grave. All praise and thanks to you Jesus; our Suffering Servant; for all that you have accomplished for us on the cross.
