Why Good Friday?

Some sins merely sting. Slight-seeming shortcomings, they inflict but brief burn-- easily soothed with a salve of self-sufficiency.
Some sins scald. Singeing beyond skin’s surface, they scorch the self’s very center, stir again the sobering sense of the soul’s insolvency.
Both sting and scald scar. These marks tell truth inevitable: skin and soul flesh and spirit
beg for Balm.
