Over Lent, the St. Basil’s Readers Group will be reading Seven Last Words by James Martin, SJ. All are welcome to join for an opening talk on March 8th, at 6:00PM (following the Stations of the Cross) in Ardèche Hall. The book is a meditation on the seven last phrases Jesus spoke from the cross. The book shows how each phrase reveals how much Jesus participated in our human condition, and how each saying can help you feel close to Jesus. If you would like to join the Readers Group, or order a copy of the book, please contact Michael at email@example.com or (416) 926-1300 x.3210.
