The last seven words of christ


Meditating on the last words of Jesus was a popular meditation in the past, but I have not heard of it much in modern times. An encounter with the crucified Christ has changed many lives for the better. There are some good meditation guides on Catholic sites. Just wondering if anyone here has tried this meditation.

God Bless,

I don’t think I’ve heard of this, no. But it certainly is a timely reminder/suggestion… as we enter Holy Week. Thank you, Deacon Tony. :thankyou:


Bishop Fulton Sheen wrote a short book on this called The Seven Last Words.
