Pope Benedict XVI resigns

 I was taking my lunch when I heard a news about  Pope Benedict XVI  who will soon be resigning in his office. I was surprised upon  hearing it but was enlighten  after hearing that it is  due to his health situation. That is quite sad but considering his age, I believed it is reasonable  for him to do that. Good luck  Pope Benedict XVI  and wish  good  health and more years in your life. Keep spreading  the good news!

Here is the pontiff's statement in full...

 "Dear Brothers, I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonisations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church. After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry. I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. 

However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognise my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me. For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is. 

Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects. And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff. With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer." (posted by my friend Tess in his facebook wall.)

Reflection and Meditation-1 Corinthians 11:17-26, 33

Christian community is built around the actions of people and not just ideas. As such we have to demonstrate our willingness to live by a particular set of ideals. This requires that we look deeply into the meaning of our actions and what they say to others about who we are, what we think and believe. The Community in Corinth is not really unified — there were different classes or groups that rarely crossed over. Paul challenges them, as he would us today, to break down the barriers that set people apart.

1 Corinthians 11:17-26, 33

17 Brothers and sisters: In giving this instruction, I do not praise the fact that your meetings are doing more harm than good. 18 First of all, I hear that when you meet as a church there are divisions among you, and to a degree I believe it; 19 there have to be factions among you in order that also those who are approved among you may become known. 20 When you meet in one place, then, it is not to eat the Lord’s supper, 21 for in eating, each one goes ahead with his own supper, and one goes hungry while another gets drunk. 22 Do you not have houses in which you can eat and drink? Or do you show contempt for the church of God and make those who have nothing feel ashamed? What can I say to you? Shall I praise you? In this matter I do not praise you. 23 For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread, 24 and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes. 33 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.

Bouquet of Flowers for Earth Day

Do you remember what day today is? Thanks to the power of internet who help me remember about the celebration of Earth Day today. That is also the reason why I am offering this bouquet of flowers as an offering to Mother Earth and Mother Nature. I just hope that we always learn to take care and take awareness of our environment even in just simply ways. I had started it for along time by planting plants and flowers in our garden and many more other ways.
Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in held on April 22, 1970. Earth Day is celebrated in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Earth Day Network, a group that wishes to become the coordinator of Earth Day globally, asserts that Earth Day is now observed on April 22 on virtually every country on Earth. World Environment Day, celebrated on June 5 in a different nation every year, is the principal United Nations environmental observance. Many communities also celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of environment-related activities. wikipedia

Just a Reminder, Nice One!

Good Morning! I believed it is a good thing starting to share this very nice sharing this morning! Have a blessed day!

The Perfect Mold

“If the virtuous man turns from the path of virtue to do evil… None of his virtuous deeds shall be remembered, because he has broken faith and committed sin.” – Ezekiel 18:24

There are some Christians who do good to atone for something bad they have done. Some rich people donate “generously” to somewhat assuage their guilt for whatever iniquities they have committed. Businessmen cheat on their taxes so that they can “help” more people through employment. These Christians believe that entering heaven is like passing the test at the weighing scale of justice. By doing more good deeds than bad, they think they will earn the right to enter. Doing good things is always virtuous; but doing it for the sake of covering up for something sinful is not in God’s book of standards.

When we manufacture our paper bags, the machine would sometimes produce some that are substandard. What we do is re-make these bags by hand. Otherwise, they will be rejected and thrown to the recycling pit. If we let God’s hands mold us according to His standards, not ours, then our entry to heaven is assured.
Rolly España (rolly@homeliving.com.ph)

REFLECTION:
Who is leading you? Is it the Good Shepherd or yourself?

Father, You are the potter and I am the clay. Mold me and fashion me according to Your will.

Ash Wednesday Readings

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the most important period of penance and preparation in the Church’s calendar. We begin our preparations for Easter with a text that encourages us to seek true conversion of heart and soul. God wants our change to be one that is wrought from within, that which will last, not something that is here today and gone tomorrow. Let us seek true conversion of heart this Lent.

Joel 2:12-18
12 Even now, says the LORD, return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning; 13 rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the LORD, your God. For gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and relenting in punishment. 14 Perhaps he will again relent and leave behind him a blessing, offerings and libations for the LORD, your God. 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion! proclaim a fast, call an assembly; 16 gather the people, notify the congregation; assemble the elders, gather the children and the infants at the breast; let the bridegroom quit his room, and the bride her chamber. 17 Between the porch and the altar let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep, and say, “Spare, O LORD, your people, and make not your heritage a reproach, with the nations ruling over them! Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’ ” 18 Then the LORD was stirred to concern for his land and took pity on his people.

Glide

I just read this very beautiful story awhile ago. I wish to also share it to all of you before I delete it in my inbox. How I wish I can always glide! Peace!

Glide

Jogging is a world of experience by itself.

After 3 miles or so, I felt a pain in my left leg.

Not a major pain, it just felt like the beginning of a cramp.

I began to limp. I didn't want to put any excess pressure on the leg because I had over three miles to go even if I turned around and headed straight back, and I wasn't at the halfway
point yet.

Something said, "Glide."

Glide?

I began to notice how I was running with the limping action. My gait was uneven. It was awkward. I didn't know the exact kinetics, but I knew the un-rhythmic motion was putting additional strain on my leg muscles.

So I began to glide.

I focused on running smoothly.
I let my feet touch the pavement as light as possible.
Like a swan skimming over a lake, I concentrated to make each step as graceful as possible.

Within a minute, my left leg felt fine.

It was a MountainWings Moment.

Often when pain hits us, we lose our grace and become awkward.

We shuffle, stumble, bumble, weave, wobble, hobble, and stagger.

If we just glide and stay smooth, often the pain goes away, because the rough motion makes it worse, not better.

Someone criticizes us. . . OUCH!
We shuffle, stumble, bumble, weave, wobble, hobble, and stagger.

Someone offends us. . . OUCH!
We shuffle, stumble, bumble, weave, wobble, hobble, and stagger.

Someone has a difference of opinion. . . OUCH!
We shuffle, stumble, bumble, weave, wobble, hobble, and stagger.

Someone doesn't respond the way we think they should. . . OUCH!
We shuffle, stumble, bumble, weave, wobble, hobble, and stagger.

Instead of maintaining our peace, the smooth gait, we become frustrated. That makes the pain worse, not better.

Instead of forgiving and forgetting, we retaliate and remember.
That often makes the pain worse.

Many of life's pains would go away if we'd just learn to glide.
Yes, it hurts, but the shuffling and stumbling usually doesn't help.

While jogging (or with any exercise) if pain starts, it's usually wise to just stop. This was more a spiritual revelation yet, it applied to physical things.

If we can keep our movements, thoughts, emotions, and spirit smooth, that often takes us right over the rough things.

Nice Words!

Some Bible readings to share to all of you today!
My Prayer: Lord please forgive me for all the shortcomings, failures and sins I have done.

Luke 1:46-56
46 Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; 47 my spirit rejoices in God my savior. 48 For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed. 49 The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 50 His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him. 51 He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart. 52 He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly. 53 The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty. 54 He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy, 55 according to his promise to our fathers, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.” 56 Mary remained with her about three months and then returned to her home.

my reflections
think:Let us hope and pray that we will reflect the righteous things of the past and not the sinful ones through our lives.

Inspiring Story

This is a very inspiring story for me. In fact, I was strucked with it because I am acting it sometimes especially if I lost my patient and control. Forgive me God for all my flaws, shortcomings and mistakes. Please continue reading the story. I got this story from a subscribed email from Kyregma. Feel free to visit their site in www.Kyregma.com

WITNESS

Therefore David blessed the Lord in the presence of all the assembly. – 1 Chronicles 29:10

I don’t know what came over me. I’ve never lost my temper like that. Worse, it happened in public. It was early and the mall was still closed. I waved to a security guard through the locked door but I felt he intentionally didn’t mind me. I felt offended. On impulse, I banged on the door and shouted at him. He pointed to the opposite entrance. There, I gave him a piece of my mind. Loudly. I came down on him hard. At first, he defended himself. Then he started apologizing. But I didn’t stop. After a few seconds, my companion held my hand to calm me down. He said, “Bro, he apologized already.” When I finally cooled down, I turned around and saw a large crowd of silent people… with their jaws half dropped.

Although I felt I was in the right, I admit I let my anger and pride take over me. That was wrong. Later, I went back to apologize to the guard but his shift had ended. I lost the opportunity to say sorry. I pray for the grace to always glorify God through my words, thoughts, and most importantly, my actions — because that’s mostly what people will remember.George Gabriel

REFLECTION:
Is God glorified through how I conduct myself in public?

Help me, Lord, to walk the talk.

Matthew 24:6

These are very wonderful and inspiring words which were forwarded to my email. Before I delete it, I would like to share it to everyone. God bless us all!

and May the Souls of the 9/11 victims rest in peace!

Matthew 24:6
=============

"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:

see that ye be not troubled:
for all these things must come to pass,
but the end is not yet."
Jesus (Matthew 24:6)

In the midst of it all. . .

. . .the sympathy, the terror, the anger, the confusion,
the hate, the blame, the fear, the uncertainty. . .

. . .on both sides.

See that YOU be NOT troubled,
for these things MUST come to pass.

We pray for your peace. . .

. . .in a world that so often knows it not.

I first wrote this the day after 9-11. I read it now and realize
that the major war for most is on a battlefront far closer to
home. It is often AT home.

As I pray each day over the MountainWings Prayer Requests, the
number of at home war prayers outnumber the prayers for loved
ones overseas in the military 50 to 1.

We pray for your peace. . .

September is Finally Here!

Hello everyone! I hope everybody is warmly welcoming the first day of September . I already start to feel the cold breeze outside when I stay some minutes watering our garden. I also wish that everyone will have a great start of the month. I am sharing some inspiring words below which was forwarded by mountainwings.com in my inbox. I just can't afford to delete it without sharing it to all of you! take care guys and stay happy all the time! I'm always trying!

Green on This Side

What if it's not greener on the other side?
Maybe past the fence it's still the same ride.

What if the ultimate joy always exists in the now?
Maybe every moment should take it's own bow.

What if the apex of happiness was always just here?
Maybe we don't have to guide, we don't have to steer.

What if that's why children always laugh so?
Maybe they're able to just let go.

What if they know happiness is not a thing to be achieved?
Maybe they can feel that being open to it, is all that we need.

What if we've become so "wise" we've forgotten that realization?
Maybe once in a while we should give our brains a vacation.

What if happiness is more about our hearts and our souls?
Maybe we can be happy with the now and still have goals.

What if the grass isn't greener, what would you do?
Maybe it's time to let happiness be the thing that fills you.

Great Messages To Share

Another week is here! I hope that everything went well to everyone especially to my online buddies in the blogosphere. I am getting a bit headache and would like to take a break for now. Thanks to kyregma.com for forwarding these inspirational message s in my inbox. Have a great and blessed day to all!

"1st READING

St. Paul speaks of a reality that very few people have ever managed to live. He reminds us that in the end, the only thing that matters is how we are positioned in the race to eternal life. Thus, striving to attain material possessions and all that goes with seeking the applause and acclaim of the world will mean very little when we die. What matters from a spiritual point of view is often neglected or completely forgotten by the world.

2 Corinthians 9:6-10
6 Brothers and sisters: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you, so that in all things, always having all you need, you may have an abundance for every good work. 9 As it is written: “He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.” 10 The one who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed and increase the harvest of your righteousness.

P S A L M

Psalm 112:1-2. 5-6. 7-8. 9
R: Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.
1 Blessed the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commands. 2 His posterity shall be mighty upon the earth; the upright generation shall be blessed. (R) 5 Well for the man who is gracious and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice; 6 he shall never be moved; the just man shall be in everlasting remembrance. (R) 7 An evil report he shall not fear; his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD. 8 His heart is steadfast; he shall not fear till he looks down upon his foes. (R) 9 Lavishly he gives to the poor; his generosity shall endure forever; his horn shall be exalted in glory. (R)

G O S P E L

The dying wheat grain is completely destroyed as it is broken open in the process of germination. Its full potential is reached when it has grown into a mature plant and give off seed itself. This is a seasonal process in plants — it is a lifetime work in a person. Let us be willing to open up our lives completely to the transforming power and work of the Spirit of God so that they will bear the fruits that they should bear.

John 12:24-26
24 Jesus said to his disciples: “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. 25 Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life. 26 Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me.”

my reflections
think:Let us be willing to open up our lives completely to the transforming power and work of the Spirit of God so that they will bear the fruits that they should bear.

Linking Up With St. LAWrence oF Old

Our saint for today is particularly associated with the City of Rome. St. Lawrence, in fact, was a deacon there and he is the most famous of the Roman martyrs. There are at least four churches in Rome which honor him and keep alive his memory. One, in fact, is located on the same street where the Sentro Filipino (the Basilica of Sta. Pudenziana, the church especially designated for the Filipino chaplaincy in Italy) is located. Nearby is a tiny church, administered by the Oblates of St. Joseph, built in the Middle Ages on top of ruins believed to have been the prison where St. Lawrence was confined before his martyrdom.
Somehow, the links are there, between the ancient Rome of the martyrs, and us 21st-century Christians. St. Augustine puts it in a remarkable sentence, given in a sermon of his, precisely for the occasion of St. Lawrence’s feast: “It is not true that the bridge was broken after the martyrs crossed; nor is it true that after they had drunk from it, the fountain of eternal life dried up.”
Our Lord, meanwhile, tells us in today’s Gospel (specially chosen one for the feast today): “Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be.”
Hence, there is this sense of continuity, this tradition (“passing on” or “handing over”), this uninterrupted bond beginning with our Lord Jesus Christ, and then extending to the saints like St. Lawrence, and to us today. St. Lawrence might have been in prison chains, but all of us also form an unbroken chain across the centuries, linked by one Faith, one Hope and one Love.
Only that our martyrdoms nowadays are of a different sort. Even those who are punished and persecuted for the Faith are not anymore grilled over blazing flames like what they did to St. Lawrence. And never will there be majestic churches raised in our honor. But the memory and the prophecy will still be there, for sure, for and by the countless men and women who, like St. Lawrence of old, follow Jesus — yes, if need be, until death. Fr. Martin Macasaet, SDB

Reflection Question:
Choose one saint, read about his life and try to follow his ways.

Lord, grant me the courage and tenacity to follow You like the saints.

St. Lawrence, Deacon and Martyr, pray for us.

Great Words to Ponder!

These are such very wonderful words to share and ponder upon. I know I can't live without Him. I would like to express my gratitude for everything He has bestowed to me and my family. God is truly great!

Nothing Is Too Difficult For Him!


Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee.

Jeremiah 32:17 KJV
__________________

For I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Philippians 4:11-14 KJV
__________________

And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God.

Matthew 19:24-26 KJV

Have Fun during the weekend!

This is quite a funny joke! another forwarded mail... Isn't all joke not funny? Just kidding guys..This is a cool joke if you understand it good! Be careful you might be the next bait..have an enjoyable weekend!

"The Pope’s Alaskan Bear Hunt

The Pope went on vacation for a few days to visit the rugged mountains of Alaska. He was cruising along the campground in the Pope Mobile when he heard a frantic commotion just at the edge of the woods. He found a helpless Democrat wearing wearing shorts, sandals, a Vote for Obama hat and a Save the Trees shirt. The man was screaming and struggling frantically, thrashing all about and trying to free himself from the grasp of a 10-foot grizzly bear.

As the Pope watched in horror, a group of Republican loggers wearing Go Sarah shirts came racing up. One quickly fired a 44 magnum slug right into the bear’s chest. The two other men pulled the semiconscious Democrat from the bear’s grasp. Then using baseball bats, the three loggers finished off the bear. Two of the men dragged the dead grizzly onto the bed of their pickup truck while the other tenderly placed the injured Democrat in the back seat.

As they began to leave, the Pope summoned al of them men over to him. “I give you my blessing for your brave actions!” he proudly proclaimed. “I have heard there was bitter hatred between Republican loggers and Democratic environmental activists, but now I’ve seen with my own eyes that this is not true.”

As the Pope drove off, one logger asked his buddies, “Who the heck was that guy?”

“Dude, that was was the Pope,” another replied. “He’s in direct contact with Heaven and has access to all wisdom.”

“Well,” the logger said, “he may have access to all wisdom, but he doesn’t know squat about bear hunting! By the way, is the bait still alive or do we need to go back to Massachusetts and get another one?”

"The Blonde Painter

An ambitious young blonde woman, in need of money, decided to hire herself out as a handyman-type. She began, door to door, canvassing a wealthy neighborhood for work. She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for her to do.

“Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?”

The blonde said, “How about 50 dollars?” The man agreed and told her that the paint and ladders that she might need were in the garage. A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.

“You’re finished already?” he asked.

“Yes,” the blonde answered, “and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.” Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50.

“And by the way,” the blonde added, “that’s not a Porch, it’s a Ferrari.”

An older lady gets pulled over for speeding...

Older Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?
Officer: Ma'am, you were speeding.
Older Woman: Oh, I see.
Officer: Can I see your license please?
Older Woman: I'd give it to you but I don't have one.

Officer: Don't have one?
Older Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for drunk driving.
Officer: I see..Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.
Older Woman: I can't do that.
Officer: Why not?
Older Woman: I stole this car

Officer: Stole it?
Older Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.
Officer: You what?
Older Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see
The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.
Officer 2: Ma'am, could you step out of your vehicle please! The woman steps out of her vehicle.
Older woman: Is there a problem sir?

Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.
Older Woman: Murdered the owner?
Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.

The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.

Officer 2: Is this your car, ma'am?
Older Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers.
The officer is quite stunned.
Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.

The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.
The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.

Officer 2: Thank you ma'am, one of my officers told me you didn't have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.
Older Woman: Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too!!!!

Nods and Shakes: Do You Wonder Why?

This is a subscribed email I got from Mountainwings.com. I just can't delete this without sharing it to all of you. This is especially true if you don't know the reason why we now and shake our head. Find out more by reading! Have a blessed Monday!

Nods and Shakes
================

Have you ever wondered where the universal gesture of nodding your head up and down to mean "Yes" and shaking it from side to side to mean "No" came from?

No matter what language you speak, country you travel to, religion you practice, race you claim, your social status, educational achievement, or economic status, you will likely nod or shake your head to mean "Yes" or "No".

Why?
The theory illustrates how early habits are formed and that some things are intrinsic to all humans.

Watch a newborn baby. Watch the baby when it's hungry.

As the baby seeks its mother's breast, the head nods up and down searching for the source of nourishment.

When baby finds the breast, it latches on and fills up.
The action calms the baby and calms the mother.
Ask any woman who has breast-fed a baby.
There is little else more soothing for them both.

Look at the same baby after it's full and the mother tries to push the breast into the baby's face.
The baby shakes it's head from side to side telling mama that it's full and doesn't want any more milk or comfort from the breast. The baby doesn't want any milk or comfort, and it won't give mama any comfort.

That's one theory of where nodding and shaking came from.
Interesting isn't it?
Notice another thing.
Nod and you have a tendency to smile.
Shake your head and you have a tendency to frown.
Try it now and see.
Warmth and comfort given in pure love always brings a smile.

"Refusing warmth and comfort given in love always brings a frown sooner or later.
The next time you nod or shake. . .
Think about that.
It gives the milk of human kindness a whole new meaning."

Concerning Anger...


Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Ephesians 4:31,32 NIV

Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.

Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.

Friday

What is Good Friday

Just sharing for now about Good Friday! have a meaningful and blessed Easter! here it is;

Good Friday, also called Holy Friday, Black Friday, or Great Friday, is a religious holiday observed primarily by adherents to Christianity commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Golgotha. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and often coincides with the Jewish observance of Passover.

Based on the scriptural details of the Sanhedrin Trial of Jesus, the Crucifixion of Jesus was most probably on a Friday. The estimated year of Good Friday is AD 33, by two different groups, and originally as AD 34 by Isaac Newton via the differences between the Biblical and Julian calendars and the crescent of the moon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Friday
