7LW: Good Friday

Jen over at Conversion Diary isn't hosting a 7 Quick Takes in observance of Good Friday, so no quick takes today. Instead, I thought I'd offer the 7 last words (thus 7LW) of Jesus for contemplation on this holy day.

1) Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do. Luke 23:34

2) Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise. Luke 23:43

3) Woman, behold your son. Behold your mother. John 19:26-27

4) My God, My God, why have you forsaken me? Matthew 27:46

5) I am thirsty. John 19:28

6) It is... finished. John 19:30

7) Father, into your hands I commit my spirit. Luke 23:46

If I am more on top of  my game next year, perhaps I'll do a little reading and contemplating and have some reflections for you as well. This year, here are some links to resources to guide you in your contemplation on the 7 Last Words:
