Good Friday question

Could someone please clarify for me why there is no Mass on Good Friday?

Dianne

From the Catholic Encyclopedia:

“The omission of the Mass proper marks in the mind of the Church the deep sorrow with which she keeps the anniversary of the Sacrifice of Calvary.”

Since good friday is the day of Jesus’ death, out of respect we do not concecrate bread because it becomes his glorified body. The mass is a celebration, and good frday is teh most solemn of days.
