The seven recorded words of Jesus from the cross are combined from all four gospels – no single account mentions them all. Their order is not fixed, but this is the traditional sequence. Usually we use them in the setting of three hours of prayer in church from 12-3pm on Good Friday.
This year, we cannot gather and so I offer these short ‘meditation prompts’ to anyone who will find them helpful. They are intended to be used with a time in between each for personal prayer and reflection – of course, with them available here you can use them however will most help you.
