TODAY IS GOOD FRIDAY
What It and Holy Work Mean, by a
Today is Good Friday, a day general
ly held holy throughout the country
by relligous bodies. "The meaning of
Holy Week and Good Friday," by
James A. Bolles, D. D., is clear, de
scriptive and Interesting reading, es
pecially to those who deign to keep
this day holy. It follows:
There has always been a Holy Week
In the church of God always, as well
uiiuei ttiu iiin
one entire week consecrated to re
llglous solemnities, by Almighty God
Himself, having Its origin In the Pas
chal week of the old dispensation, fore
shadowing the suffering of Christ, and
continued In the Christian church to
commemorate those sufferings. And
as In the one week the pious Jew
looked forward to the atonement sym
bolized In the Passover Lamb to be re
vealed In the fulness of time, so In
the other the pious Christian looks
back upon the stupendous mystery as
finished; and under both dispensations
the real subject of the week Is, "The
Lamb slain from the foundation of the
world." Yes, for 1500 years before the
coming of Christ, there was a Holy
Week In the church of God. Year af
ter year, the Jewish nation gathered
within the temple, to be nearer the al
tar of their faith. There i they re
hearsed the story of their redemption
from Egypt; there they heard the
miracles ,of their deliverance read;
there the Paschal Lamb was slain, and
the mystical supper eaten; and so,
from century to century, it continued
until the great week arrived, when
the types and symbols disappeared, and
the true Paschal Lamb was slain.
If, for 1500 years, It was dear to
the faithful, as the shadow of good
things to come, can it be possible that
it Is no longer dear as the week com
memorative of the actual fulfillment?
The supposition Is Impossible. We
know It Is not so. We know from
the undoubted testimony of nil hi.
tory, that as the week came around.
so filled and corwded with the most
sacred and affectlnar recollection r.t
the Bufferings of Christ, the early
Christians rescued It from all com
mon and worldly purposes, and made
It commemorative of all the mysteri
ous agonies of the Saviour's cross and
passion. They crowded their temples
and places of worship; they listened
to the story of the Redeemer's con
descension and love, as read to them
from the Inspired record of the Pro
phets and evangelists of our Lord;
they followed Him through all the
painful steps of His humiliation and
sufferings, from Gethsemane to Cal-
