Good Friday, East and West

Today, Christians from many different traditions stop to remember the events of Good Friday. This year is unique because the Eastern and Western dates for Easter match. We have found some videos to share with you that showcase the beauty of Good Friday as observed by Christians, East and West, for hundreds of years.

The first three videos capture the Passion According to St. John, presented in Gregorian chant. The last video is the first stasis of the burial lamentations in the Orthodox Church, chanted in Greek. Don’t worry! All videos also have English translations.

We pray constantly that God would heal the schisms dividing Christians from being one body. We hope this collection of videos will speak to your heart and soul as we all contemplate Christ crucified.

May Good Friday bring you hope that God’s power exceeds even our deepest darkness.
