KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Even on the busiest days, Christians break from work to attend Good Friday services. For a full hour, time dedicated to prayer.

"It's the time to reflect that we may have struggles, but I don't think it's anything compared to what Jesus faced," said D’Orsay Fitzpatrick.

The stations of the cross tells of the life and death of Jesus Christ. Christians spend Good Friday in meditation.

"Beginning with the very first one to when they spat on him to the very last one where he was crucified. Keeps us in check," said Martha Baldivia.

"No television, just to reflect on our lord and his death and what it means to us," said Virgil Criss.

Good Friday follows 40 days of Lent, when Jesus spent 40 days fasting in the desert. Christians generally honor it by giving something up.

"Chocolate, that's one thing. Trying to be a better person by not using certain words," said Criss with a laugh.

Fasting continues on Good Friday, Easter Sunday is this weekend.
