Seven Last Words Meditations
April 3, 2015

 

Together with Father Leonard Villa and Father Robert Brisson, the seven last words were preached. The audio for the fifth word, “I Thirst,” is below: 

 

 

The reading for the word is as follows: 

Jn 19:28 After this, when Jesus knew that all was now finished, he said (in order to fulfill the scripture), “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar full of sour wine was standing there. So they put a sponge full of the wine on a branch of hyssop and held it to his mouth.
