Tuesday, March 24 “The Gospels’ Legacy: Jesus’ Words Spoken from the Cross” – with Art Zannoni

As part of our Lenten observance and formation you are invited to an evening here at St. Ed’s of reflection/meditation on the last spoken words by Jesus while being crucified on the cross. Narrated in the Gospels, for Centuries the Church has meditated on these seven last words (sentences) of Jesus. They are his words of departure and legacy to would-be followers. These sayings are brief and poignant, capturing the depths of Jesus’ compassion, physical suffering, emotional torment and spiritual isolation. Laced with feelings of abandonment, surrender, forgiveness and thirst. The sentences are also prayers; filled with sig- nificance and meaning for the individual believer and faith community. In this presentation we will explore, reflect and pray with the powerful and important seven last words. All are welcome
