Friday, April 18
Friday of the Lord’s Passion (Good Friday)

Sit in the silence

In the midst of all that today holds, it is the silence that is striking. Stop for a moment and recognize it; pause as it laces its way through your day. It hangs in the air as you sit at the foot of the cross. Here you witness God’s great love for you. As you venerate the cross, in the solemn silences of the everyday, and recount Christ’s Passion, give thanks for that love, mourn its cost, and remember what it calls you to: lives that cherish silence and wait and work in hope of what’s to come.

Today’s readings: Isaiah 52:13-53:12; Hebrews 4:14-16; 5:7-9; John 18:1-19:42 (40). “Whom are you looking for?”

We are a
Catholic Community
located on the
North side of
Lakeland, Florida.

In the words of Pope Benedict XVI who says, "the Holy Spirit rebuilds the bridge of true communication between heaven and earth," we at St. Anthony Catholic Church are here to help each other cross that bridge. We are a missionary church, Catholic in nature, called to be missionaries to the world and one another.

The Second Vatican Council clearly states that people are the church. More so than any building, program, or even teaching, the church witnesses the presence of Christ to the world through its people. Saint Anthony Catholic Church is abundantly blessed in this regard.
