Ward Memorial, St Saviour's, Totland, Isle of Wight


Christ Crucified

This is the Ward Memorial in the churchyard of St Saviour's Church at Freshwater on the Isle of Wight. It shows Christ crucified, and is why I've chosen this picture for Good Friday.

Good Friday is also known as Holy Friday.

It is the day Christians remember Christ's betrayal by Judas Iscariot;
His arrest by soldiers;
His trial, by Pontius Pilate;
His execution by crucifiction at Golgotha ,
His death, assisted by a Roman sword;
His burial in Joseph of Arimathea's tomb.

Good Friday is a sombre, solemn day - but is a day tinged with excitement because we know that Jesus rose from the dead to take his place in heaven.
.....

The story of Jesus's life is told concisely in the Apostles' Creed - at one time thought to have been written by the Apostles, who each contributed one article of faith (shown as a separate line).

In Latin

Credo in Deum Patrem omnipotentem, Creatorem caeli et terrae,
et in Iesum Christum, Filium Eius unicum, Dominum nostrum,

qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria Virgine,
passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus,
descendit ad ínferos, tertia die resurrexit a mortuis,

ascendit ad caelos, sedet ad dexteram Patris omnipotentis,

inde venturus est iudicare vivos et mortuos.


Credo in Spiritum Sanctum,

sanctam Ecclesiam catholicam, sanctorum communionem,

remissionem peccatorum,

carnis resurrectionem,

vitam aeternam.

Amen


From the Book of Common Prayer

I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary.
Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried.
He descended into hell, the third day he rose again from the dead,
He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting.
Amen.

What a fabulous memorial for such a "famous" day in our Christian history, Ellie! Just today (still Thursday here in Atlanta) I was telling g'son Nicholas (age 8) the Good Friday story and as I told him about the entire Easter weekend, I realized how difficult it is to explain what happened. It really is an incredulous story!

A fitting photograph for such an important day, one in which the world changed.
A wonderful picture for this so special day!

Very appropriate Ellie. Is this actually closer in Totland? I like the inclusion of the greenery.
EJWilkins: Err, yes, you're right, it's Totland n- I've fixed it now.
Any idea why I wrote Freshwater?
