Seven Last Words and Eight Words of Easter : Meditations for the Journey to Pentecost
The church pays fervent attention to the forty days of Lent. But what about those eight weeks of Easter? Catholic author Mary Sharon Moore effectively links the words of Jesus in his agony on the cross with his words to his followers following his resurrection. "If Easter was Jesus' event," Moore claims, "then Pentecost is our event." Seven Last Words and Eight Words of Easter erases any ambiguity about our mission as ones "sent" now, as Jesus was sent, into the world of our 21st century. These stunning essay meditations are crafted in Moore's clear and compelling style. Each meditation is followed by reflection questions, ideal for personal reflection or small group conversation.
