The Seven Last Words of Christ

The seven last words (or statements) Jesus said from his Cross are a classic reflection for Lent. This year, Fr. Chinnappan Pelavendran preached on this theme throughout a four evening parish mission retreat at held St. Paul’s, March 14-17. His four talks are below.

Monday’s Talk
“Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they’re doing”
“Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Tuesday’s Talk
“Jesus said to his mother: ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then he said to the disciple: “This is your mother.”
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

Wednesday’s Talk
“I thirst.”
“It is finished.”

Thursday’s Talk
“Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commend my spirit!’”
