Good Friday: "I Thirst" (John 19:28-29)
Homily from Good Friday, on some of the last words of Christ.
The Thirst of a Man - The Cup of Judgment - The Wine of the Kingdom
"After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), 'I thirst.' A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth."
