Join me as each day over Holy week (Monday to Friday) as I reflect on some of the last words Jesus spoke before his crucifixion. Jesus’ last words give us an insight into who Jesus the God-Man is, how he struggled with pain, how he suffered and yet still cared, forgave and continued to love.
Each reflection begins with a passage from scripture and then a short reflection followed by a time of prayer.
Reflection 1. Forgiveness.
The reading is Luke 23. 26-35 NRSV
Reflection 2. Afterlife
The reading is Luke 23. 39 – 43 NRSV
Reflection 3. Family
The reading is John 19. 25 – 27 CEV
Reflection 4. Pain
The reading is John 19. 28 – 30 CEV
Reflection 4. Ends?
The reading is from John 19. 30 NRSV
