Today is Good Friday here in the Philippines. Why they called it Good Friday? We called it Good Friday because this is the day where we commemorated the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. As early as the 2nd century it was kept by Catholics as a day of penance and fasting. The Roman Catholic churches have special liturgies for the day, which include readings and prayers commemorating Christ’s suffering on the cross and this is the day where Jesus died on the cross for our sins.
