Seven Last Words

The Seven Last Words of Jesus Spoken from the Cross”

By Deacon Mark Friedman,   Archdiocese of Cincinnati

 Deacon Mark presents a moving and thoughtful reflection on Jesus’ last words from the cross taken from the Gospel.  

  • “Father, forgive them,”

  • “I thirst,”

  • “Today you will be with me in Paradise,”

  • “Woman behold your Son,”

And the other powerful words of Jesus come alive with insights and prayer all woven together with music, both meditative and participatory.
