Seven Last WordsLenten Reflections for Today's Believers

Reading Seven Last Words felt like listening to seven homilies, rhythmic, lyrical, comforting, encouraging. Woven in among the words is a feeling of warm exhortation, something that induces a desire to turn to God--which is what good preaching does.Mary Vineyard, National Catholic Reporter
