Christians in Mombasa mark Good Friday with Holy procession

MOMBASA -- Christians around the world were commemorating Good Friday, which marks the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Calvary Hill, just outside the ancient city of Jerusalem, nearly 2,000 years ago.

In several sectors of Christianity, including eastern Orthodox, Anglican and Catholic, Good Friday is observed by some Christians by attending church services and by fasting.

The holy day is also commemorated by carrying out reenactments of the events which led to Christ’s crucifixion, known as the Passion of Jesus.

Celebrated on the Friday before Easter Sunday, it is considered one of the most somber days for Christians during Holy Week.

Traditionally a day of fasting and penance in the Christian faith, devotees reflect on Christ’s crucifixion.

Throughout the world, many reenactments take place in public squares, paying homage to his sufferings.
