7 Last Words of Jesus (English & Latin)


Jesus, before he died has left us WORDS that summed up his mission. As God, he forgave our sins. As human, he felt thirst. As a friend, he entrusted us to Mary, His mother. As a teacher, he taught us to humble ourselves before God, even if it means CROSS for us. As a saviour of the world, he taught us to acknowledge our sinfulness before God, so as to be able to be with him in Paradise. Let’s then reflect on his 7 last words and ask Jesus to help us listen with an open heart.

1.”Father, forgive them; for they do not know

what they are doing.”  Lk. 23: 34

Pater, dimitte illis, quia nesciunt, quid faciunt.

2.   “Truly I tell you, today you will be with

me in Paradise.” Lk.23:43

Hodie mecum eris in Paradiso.

3.   “Woman, here is your son;

Here is your mother.” Jn. 19: 26-27

Mulier, ecce filius tuus.

4.  “My God, my God, why have you

forsaken me?” Mk. 15:34; Mt 27:46

Deus meus, Deus meus, utquid dereliquisti me?

‘Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?’

5.   “I am thirsty.”  Jn. 19:28


6. “It is finished.”   Jn 19:30

Consummatum est.

7.   ” Father, into your hands

I commend my spirit.” Lk 23: 46

In manus tuas, Domine, commendo  

spiritum meum.
