    • Second, you’ll turn your gaze inwards at your own experience. In other words, “What is Jesus saying to me?”

    • Third, you’ll glance up—with, as Sr. Brink says, “a great deal of hubris”—imagining how Christ’s words might be seen from God’s vantage point.

    Divided into seven parts, this retreat invites you to ponder each of Jesus’ seven statements from the cross over the course of a week. The accompanying written guide rounds out the retreat experience with in-depth lecture outlines and notes.

    As you take turns viewing Jesus’ ultimate words, you will experience new heights and depths of feeling in your annual recital of the Easter story.
