First Friday and a new feature

The exceptionally large assembly gathered for the 5:00 Mass this afternoon at St. Peter's reminded me that today is First Friday--a perfect day to launch the new feature I decided upon last night while doing spiritual reading. It is my hope and plan to offer a short reflection by an outstanding writer on the typically "Friday" theme of the Lord's suffering and death.
We'll start with Adrenne von Speyr, the author of the book I was reading last night (The Cross, Word and Sacrament):
"The Son of Man not only loved mankind unto death, but he loved God too, God above all, God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit."
