Comments: Understanding Good Friday

Can I say how much I, and I am sure many others, appreciate these writings. The fact that there are few or no comments in no way indicates that us TA readers and contributors are obsessed by only one subject. Thank you.

I'd like to second Richard's Comment, if I may. It's a real tonic to have such splendidly thoughtful spiritual essays. Thank you T A for their inclusion.

And I third these comments.
Whatever we disagree about here, however passionately, we are all here because our faith and its mysteries matter so much to us.

Thank you, editors, for that much needed counterbalance that brings us all together again. And for your consistently outstanding choice of contributors to these spiritual sections.

I also agree with Richard's comment. Our preacher's Good Friday sermon was pretty much about Ferdinand's final sentence.

However if it were Justin Welby he would say we can't speak about against these abuses because the Germans wouldn't like it and we mustn't upset them. Have we elected a mouse to the see of Canterbury?

May I also vote in favour of Erika's comment?
Looks like Peace has broken out in time for Easter, as indeed it should; for didn't Our Blessed Lord say in the Upper Room at the very first Easter - "Peace Be With You"?

Fourth them. The rawness of basics such as these without sophistry... true Anglican.

Amen. Peace be with you all.

No Chris, Welby wouldn't say that, as I suspect you well know. A sad and superficial response.
