It is Finished - Good Friday Service - April 2nd, 2021

Jesus said, “It is finished.”  But, what is finished?  Why even say this given the pain and agony that would be necessary for a crucified man to speak?  In order to simply breathe Jesus would need to push up from the nail in His feet and pull Himself up using the nails in His wrists and the muscles that were bruised or torn by the scourging.  To speak would require even more air, meaning He would experience even greater pain while trying to hold Himself up to speak.  This must be something important to make it worth saying. Listen to my homily to find out more!
