"I think of how that dark Friday was, when Christ was lifted up on the cross. On that terrible Friday, the earth shook and grew dark, frightful storms blasted the earth, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Jesus both were overcome with grief and despair; the superb man they had loved hung lifeless upon the cross. I think of all the days since the beginning of this worlds history,
that Friday was the darkest.
But the doom of that day did not endure, because on Sunday, the resurrected Lord burst the bonds of death. He ascended from the grave and appeared gloriously, triumphant as the Savior of all mankind. And with that sublime act, He softened the devastating, consuming sorrow that gnaws at the souls of those who have lost their precious loved ones.
Each of us will have our own Fridays, those days when the universe itself seems shattered, and the shards of our world lie littered upon us in pieces. We have all experienced those broken times, when it seems we can never be put together again. We will all have our Fridays, but I testify in the name of the one who conquered death, Sunday will come. May we understand and live in thanksgiving for the priceless gifts that come to us as sons and daughters of a loving Heavenly Father and for the promise of that bright day when we shall all rise triumphant from the grave, that we may always know
no matter how dark our Friday,
Sunday will come."
-Joseph B. Wirthlin
