Day 1 - What are “The Seven Last Words of Christ?”

March 2, 2017
Explore the Scriptures and the reflections on The Seven Last Words of Christ.
Each day will include a question, prayer, or challenge for putting your faith into action. You are invited to ponder the seven phrases uttered by Jesus Christ in his final three hours, as he hung on the Cross.
We pray with these words so that we may be drawn into deeper relationship with our Lord and Savior.
