Good Friday, though, is something of an exception. On this day, Catholics memorialize the crucifixion of Jesus with a multi-part Gospel reading and reverencing of the cross.
I guess the lesson learned here was to throw away your decades of visual memories of this day and enter into it anew as someone who's never witnessed it. With that outlook, I got a couple photos that I was at least content with.
