Good Friday 2023 is here. The day is observed on the fifth day of the Holy Week -- a day after Maundy Thursday and the Friday before Easter. Every year, this day falls between March 20 and April 23. This year, it is celebrated on April 7. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Holy and Great Friday, Great and Holy Friday, and Black Friday.
It is a day to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. Some people refrain from eating and recounting the painful crucifixion of Jesus. Christians across the globe are gearing up to observe this day by gathering in the church, fasting, remembering the sacrifices of Jesus Christ, praying, and sending wishes, greetings, quotes, and messages to their loved ones.
It is a public holiday in countries like Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Finland, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, New Zealand, Norway, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Paraguay, Philippines, Portugal, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Uruguay, United Kingdom, and Venezuela. But it is not a federal holiday in the United States.
Here are some messages, greetings, wishes, and quotes to share with your family and friends on Good Friday 2023.

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf in springtime - Martin Luther.
Stoning prophets and erecting churches to their memory afterwards has been the way of the world through the ages. Today we worship Christ, but the Christ in the flesh we crucified - Mahatma Gandhi.
Good Friday and Easter free us to think about other things far beyond our own personal fate, about the ultimate meaning of all life, suffering, and events; and we lay hold of a great hope - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
If Christ is God, He cannot sin, and if suffering was a sin in and by itself, He could not have suffered and died for us. However, since He took the most horrific death to redeem us, He showed us in fact that suffering and pain have great power - E.A. Bucchianeri.
So shall we join the disciples of our Lord, keeping faith in Him in spite of the crucifixion, and making ready, by our loyalty to Him in the days of His darkness, for the time when we shall enter into His triumph in the days of His light - Philip Ledyard Cuyler.
