What were Jesus’ final seven statements on the cross? How do they speak to your life today?

In this audio retreat, award-winning New Testament Professor Sr. Laurie Brink, O.P., Ph.D., shows you how to lift Jesus’ last words off the pages of Scripture and inscribe them onto your own life. An engaging retreat leader, Sr. Brink imparts wisdom that will uplift and edify your spirit.

As you pray along with Meditations on Christ’s 7 Last Words, you’ll practice changing your perspective. Sr. Brink employs the metaphor of trifocals:

  • First, you’ll peer into the evangelists’ distinct narratives.

  • 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
