It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last. Today we commemorate the death of our Jesus of Nazareth, as he offered himself, a pascal lamb, to pay the ultimate price, so that we would not have to.
