The Seven Last Words

The devotion to the Seven Last Words can be traced back to the 12th century. They have been a rich source of deep reflection and meditation for Christians.

The Seven Last Words refer not to individual words but seven phrases uttered by Our Lord on the cross.

Seven, in the Bible, is always associated with perfection and completion. Genesis tells us that God created the world and rested on the seventh day when all was complete. The Seven Last Words are associated with a new completion...

Today, I invite you to use the Seven Last Words as part of your Good Friday retreat...I will post them here throughout the day...
