The Seven Last Words of Christ
First, watch this video prepared by Fr. Stephen Howe, LC on YouTube
Read the seven last words:
“Father forgive them for they know not what they are doing.”
“My God, my God why have your forsaken me?”
“Woman behold thy son; son behold thy mother.”
“Amen I say to you: today you will be with me in Paradise.”
“Into your hands I commend my spirit.”
“It is finished.
Which of these words (or short sentences), which were the last words that Jesus uttered from the pulpit of the cross, seem to touch you most? Why do you think that might be?
Can you think of a sacrifice you could offer up to Our Lord this week?
Was there any image or word in the song that struck you?
