Tenebrae factae sunt, dum crucifixissent...

Language: Latin

Tenebrae factae sunt, dum crucifixissent Jesum Judaei: 
et [circa]1 horam nonam exclamavit Jesus voce magna: 
Deus meus, ut quid me dereliquisti? 
Et inclinato capite, emisit spiritum.

Exclamans Jesus voce magna, ait: 
Pater, in manus tuas commendo spiritum meum.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
