Taken from the four gospels, the last words of Christ from the cross are words of love. In a deeply profound way they tell us who Jesus was in death and who He is in life. His dying words are living wordsfor Him and for us.
Let these words dwell in your heart during the Church's most holy season of Lent and throughout the year.
