On Good Friday, I shared, over Twitter, just a few meditations on the last words of Christ during a three-hour reflection I attended at the Saint Anthony of Padua in New Bedford, Mass. Some, in sum (in reverse Twitter order for an easier read):
*The cross! It takes our guilt away #GoodFriday
*She had laid her firstborn in a manger. She gathers the rest of us at the foot of the cross.To teach us how to follow her fiat. #last words
*Love so amazing, so divine. Demands my soul, my life, my all.#GoodFriday #*****
Tweets, needless to say, do not do the three hours justice (so apologies to the last words, you, and Fr. Landry). We also don’t have to confine such meditations to Good Friday.
