The Seven Last Words
Draw closer to Jesus from the foot of the Cross
Jesus spoke seven times while hanging in agony on the Cross. Why did He say those words? What do they mean for us today? EWTN invites you to keep watch with Christ during Lent — or any time. Let Jesus speak those words to you in this seven-week video series with EWTN Chaplain, Fr. Joseph Mary Wolfe, MFVA.
“When he returned to his disciples he found them asleep. He said to Peter, ‘So you could not keep watch with me for one hour?’”
– Matthew 26:40
