Lenten Reflections from the Executed: #515 Jose Villegas / April 16, 2014 March 20, 2015

*These reflections are taken from pieces of the last words of the last 40 persons executed in Texas.

Jose Villegas-

Jose-Villegas

“I am at peace.”

In a world of violence and fear, we work so hard for peace. Unfortunately, I think that peace is far more about being and trusting than it is working. Jose Villegas understood that lesson. In his final moments, Villegas wanted the world to know that he was at peace.

After you stop working, I invite you to pray the last words of Jose Villegas:

“I am at peace.”

Amen.
