    One thought on “The Seven Last Words”

    1. Reading the reviews for this book I definitely agree that it is very powerful and a good book to read during a retreat or lent. But I also feel it was a bit above my understanding and probably someone interested in theology and/or the religious life would get more out of this book. For example, I was for the longest time trying to figure out what the seven words werebut they are actually the phrases Jesus used before He died on the cross.

    2. Beautiful poetry, and very good for light retreat-reading. The Archbishop weaves poets such as Christine Rossetti, spiritual commentary, and some very striking images (e.g. Christ fells the giant as David did - not with five stones, but with five wounds) to create a pleasurable and uplifting meditation on the Passion of Christ.Quotables:"I do not want to know on what anvil snowflakes are hammered.""Am a stone and no sheep?" (Quoting C. Rossetti).
