The Seven Last Words - 4. 'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?'

Tuesday, April 07, 2020

The Seven Last WordsFrom the Friday before Palm Sunday until Holy Saturday, the student brothers offer you a daily meditation on the Seven Last Words from the Cross, to accompany you and help you prepare for the mystery of Easter.

This Holy Week, the Dominican student brothers at Blackfriars Oxford invite you to meditate on the Seven Last Words. In this ancient devotion, the Church ponders Jesus’ last words as he hung from the Cross, finding in them a great source of spiritual nourishment and consolation.

From the Friday before Palm Sunday until Holy Saturday, we will upload a daily podcast meditation, to accompany you and help you prepare for the mystery of Easter.

Br Vincent Antony is a student brother and was born and grew up in Paris. Having moved to England to study Mathematics & Philosophy, he felt called to the Dominicans whom he met while studying and joined the English Province of the Order in 2016. He enjoys reading tales and Ancient History. One of his favourite books of the Bible (perhaps because of this?) is the Book of Tobit. | vincentantony.loning@english.op.org
