Publisher's Summary

Based on his talks at New York's St. Patrick's Cathedral on Good Friday 2015, the New York Times best-selling author and editor at large of America magazine offers a portrait of Jesus, using his last words on the cross to reveal how deeply he understood our predicaments, what it means to be fully human, and why we can turn to Christ completely in mind, heart, and soul.
With the warmth, wisdom, and grace that infuse his works, Father James Martin explains why Jesus' crucifixion and death on the cross is an important teaching moment in the Gospels. Jesus' final statements, words that are deeply cherished by his followers, exemplify the depth of his suffering but also provide a key to his empathy and why we can connect with him so deeply.

Perfect lead in to Passion Week

Fr Martin does an excellent job in his written and spoken text to help guide us through meditating on Jesus's last words. This will become an annual listing during Lent.

James Martin and Jesus, what a winner

Fr Martin always does a superb job of opening up my thoughts to spiritual areas. His premise that the seven last words apply to Jesus' humanity and His understanding of ours makes for a great meditation. I listened to it several times during Lent

God bless Fr Jim

James Martin is one of the best Christian communicators of our age. He combines scholarship with experience, inspires and informs, and even reminds us that the US is not entirely populated by those who worship money and guns! (Ever since US declared itself the enemy of Western civilisation I do rejoice to know that decent Christian Catholics like Fr Jim, will remind me that even in Trump's USA, still defend the faith.
