Good Friday or the Holy Friday marks the day on which Jesus Christ was crucified after being betrayed by Judas. This is the day when Jesus was put to death on the Holy Cross. Good Friday is followed by Easter Sunday, the day when Christ rose from the dead.

Readings from the Psalms and Gospels along with praises of the ‘Son of God’ commemorate the tragic event at the churches across the globe.
It is this day when on the betrayal of Christ’s disciple – Judas, the Royal soldiers arrested Jesus Christ from the garden of Gethsemane. Judas had asked the soldiers to arrest the man whom he’ll kiss. Jesus Christ was sentenced to death on the accounts of blasphemy.
Christ was crucified at the Calvary and as per Psalm 22 the ‘Son of God’ stated,
"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" from the cross.
