The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross

WORD OF GOD THE LETTER OF SAINT PAUL TO THE EPHESIANS 5:25-27 Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the Church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
