WEDNESDAY FAITH SESSION (NO GREATER LOVE) –
WEDNESDAY 12TH AUGUST 2020 AT 10-11.30AM
In the last session Edward Sri presented the walk with Jesus on his way to Calvary. We followed Jesus encounter with Simon of Cyrene to the Blood and Water from Christ’s side pointing to Baptism and the Eucharist.
Now we will look at The Seven Last Words which refers to the seven brief sayings Jesus uttered from the Cross before He died. These are seven last words not merely words spoken to the world in general but as personal words spoken to each one of us. Do you know every time we go to Mass we are on a Pilgrimage? There is a lot to discover. Come and find out what Jesus has to say to each of us. After a brief reflection and sharing we will view the Resurrection which only completes the whole story of our Salvation and ends the Greater Love series. These were all filmed on location in the Holy Land. All are welcome even if you have not attended these sessions before on:
Time: 10 to 11.30am
Venue: Meeting room next to Office
Coffee/Tea is provided. Bring your own mugs if you like a cuppa.
