Good Friday- Sacred Heart Cathedral

Crucifixion of Christ – The knowing and willing sacrifice

Continuing the accounts of the Passion narratives at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Kota Kinabalu

I presume almost all of you know Good Friday symbolises the day Christ was crucified about two thousand years ago. If that not be the case, then what can I say? Gobsmacked!!!!!!!!!!

And this is the second instalment of the Passion narratives. You can find the first instalment of the Passion of Christ, with picture included, here.

The following scenes of crucifixion of Christ correspond to Stations XI & XII respectively as described in the Passion narratives and depicted by the sculptures at the Sacred Heart Cathedral. If you are interested to  take in all the sights of the whole 14 stations, please do visit the place. But in small group, please. The cathedral is not a place of tourist attraction. And don’t mention the fact that I told you about the place. Shhhhhh…. it’s a little secret between you and me. And we shall keep it that way.Wink, wink……….and nudge, nudge.

Station XI

Nailing Jesus to the Cross

Station XII

My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” is one of the seven statements generally accepted to have been uttered by Jesus while he was on the cross. I shall use that as my picture caption but in Aramai as it generates emotional feelings within all of us. That should make even a big man tremble with fears and crumble into an emotional wreck. That should also put some fears into you to be always on the morally upright path. Now you see, even taking a holiday trip can be a moral lesson for all of us.

Please don’t be mistaken, I am no preacher.

And here we have come to the end of the  narrative of Crucifixion of Christ. Have a good Good Friday.

Next is Easter Sunday, the Resurrection of Christ.

**All images above have been rehashed to dramatise the scenes of Crucifixion of Christ as I would visualise them. True representatives of the sculptures of the Passion narratives can be found at the Scared Heart Cathedral.

**Sacred Heart Cathedral is situated off Jalan Tengku Abdul Rahman, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
