You don’t have to wait until Lent or Holy Week to reflect on what Christian tradition refers to as Jesus’ seven last words. This month, I’m giving away a copy of The Last Words of Jesus: A Meditation on Love and Suffering, the latest book from Dan Horan, OFM (Franciscan friar, columnist at America Magazine and fellow WTU alum/musician). Here’s a quick description of the book:
“The Last Words of Jesus presents an original, inspiring, and challenging reflection on the final words of Jesus from the Cross. Grounded in sound scriptural interpretation and rooted in the Franciscan spiritual tradition, The Last Words of Jesus offers a profound meditation on the place of love and suffering in the life of Christian discipleship with a particular emphasis on the call to social justice present in the Gospel. This is a book shows how the message and experience of Christ on the Cross are timely all year long, and not just for Lent.”
