Good Friday Celebrated in Jammu

Christians take out religious procession on Good Friday

A religious procession was taken out by Christian community here today on the occasion of Good Friday today. A large number of Christian community members participated in the procession.

Speaking on the occasion, Rev Fr. Jose John Parish Priest St. Peter’s Catholic Church Premnagar, Christian Colony, said that Good Friday is a big Eid for the Christians as Jesus Christ was crucified on this day.

In Rome, crucified death was taken to be very disgraceful and it was a symbol of hatred but Jesus Christ faced this death for the well being of others, he added.

He said "Good Friday is called Good because it brought the message of peace and joy for us. And that is the reason, we consider it as Eid and celebrate it’’.

He said the Day reminds us of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and after the passage of over two thousand years he is still alive in our hearts.
