The Last Seven Words of Jesus

Introduction (10.00 am)

You are invited to contemplate the image, read the biblical reference and dwell on the word. Allow the Spirit of God to use words and images to speak to you and to transform you. You will have an hour before we move to the next Word–Image. You may consider having a response at the end of each Image–Word; for instance you can light a candle, contemplate a flower, pick a stone, do a picture, write a poem, write in your diary, bake something, feel the water running through your fingers, the grass beneath your bare feet … just be creative! … and make sure you do something to close the circle of the meditation.

May the unpredictable wind of God guide you inn this journey.

Revd Ernesto Loxada-Uzuriaga
