On Good Friday, before the enlightenment:

The person believes it to be just another holiday. The holiday gives him to have a day off to be with his family. He spends his day watching TV, scrolling through internet, going out with friends. When asked about the crucifixion of Jesus, he nods and responds that he is aware but just never gave a thought on it. He didn’t know the events that led to the crucifixion nor did the philosophy of it. Upon asking whether he attends the Sunday church, he laughed stating he doesn’t get the free time.

On Good Friday, after the enlightenment:

We discussed the events, the reasons of crucifixion. There was silence on his part as we carried on. Upon completion, he asked us the sources, God’s intention for letting his only son die. While we answered his queries, we took his opinion on Good Friday to which he stated as: “It’s really unthankful of us to not have praised such a humble, brave man the way he really deserved. I’d honestly never think about this but God’s plan for us and his son – I guess that’s something to contemplate on.”

The person we mentioned is now a devout Christian. Having done this informal discussion around 4 years ago, he regularly attends church and masses. On Good Friday, he can be seen in the local church redeeming himself and his past self, as he makes his connection with God and his son.
