Packed with the fruits of Moore’s experience and insight, Moving in God’s Direction draws from the deeper scriptural and liturgical riches of Christian heritage.

The church pays fervent attention to the forty days of Lent. But what about those eight weeks of Easter?

In Seven Last Words and Eight Words of Easter, Catholic author, speaker, teacher, and spiritual director Mary Sharon Moore powerfully links the last words of Jesus in his agony and crucifixion to his words to the apostles following his resurrection.

Moore approaches the well beloved “seven last words” of Jesus with fresh and compelling intimacy. The “eight words of Easter,” while familiar to many from their appearance in the Gospels, offer fresh territory for insight in this meditative context.

Seven Last Words and Eight Words of Easter is rich fare and a source of interior renewal in this most important Lent-to-Pentecost season in the church’s liturgical year. Those who are new or returning to the faith, regulars or occasional visitors to the adoration chapel, teachers and catechists of the faith, homebound parishioners, those who minister to prisoners, all these and more will find great consolation, encouragement, and fresh challenge in these fifteen highly polished meditations and the reflection questions that accompany each.

    Our MOMS (Ministry of Moms Sharing) group has been reflecting on Mary Sharon Moore’s book Seven Last Words and Eight Words of Easter. As we all shelter in place, fearful and daunted by an uncertain future, we can relate more than ever to the first disciples, huddled in the upper room after Jesus’ death. We too yearn for the risen Lord in these uncertain times. This book is a beautiful tool to walk the journey from death to new life in Christ.
