Seven Last Words
Good Friday, April 19

 

Over the past fifteen years, the Seven Last Words devotion has become well established at St. Mary’s Cathedral. On Good Friday from 12 noon to 2 p.m., the students of Newman House will be leading the Seven Last Words devotion – readings, meditations and music which prayerfully recall the seven times that Jesus speaks from the Cross. Father Raymond J. de Souza will preach the meditations on the theme, “The Scandal in the Church and the Scandal of the Cross”. The departure point for the meditations is the words of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger at the 2005 Stations of the Cross: “Should we not also think of how much Christ suffers in His own Church? How often is the holy sacrament of His Presence abused, how often must He enter empty and evil hearts! … How much filth there is in the Church, and even among those who, in the priesthood, ought to belong entirely to him!” Please join these prayers and meditations in a spirit of penance and purification.
