The Cries of Jesus From the Cross: An Anthology

As death approaches, the human heart speaks its greatest words of love to those it holds most dear. So it was with Jesus who in His final hours gave us seven last “words,” rich with spiritual meaning for every human soul.

For the first time ever, Archbishop Fulton Sheen's complete writings and reflections on Christ’s last words have been compiled into this one book. Sheen shows how the seven words are, in fact, a full catechism on the spiritual life. From them, you’ll learn the secrets to living the Beatitudes, ways to avoid the deadly vices of anger, envy, lust, and pride, and how to cultivate the heavenly virtues of fortitude, prudence, justice, and charity.

Few books are such an inspiring call to sanctity, and few books are such a spiritual powerhouse. With Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen as your guide, you’ll also learn:

 

  • Why, during His Passion, Jesus never proclaimed his innocence.
  • Why Jesus appealed to His Father to forgive, but did not Himself forgive directly.
  • What Jesus’ third word from the Cross says about lust.
  • Why, like Jesus, the most innocent among us must suffer.
  • Why darkness covered the earth after Jesus spoke his fourth word.
  • The seven words spoken unto Jesus while He hung on the Cross — and what they reveal about the impact of Christ’s Passion on your soul.
  • What the Passion says about judging others (and why it’s an assault against hope).
  • How the conversion of the good thief is the key to the conversion of our modern world.
  • Why you and I can sin a thousand times and be forgiven, and the angels who have sinned but once are eternally unforgiven.
  • How envy becomes the denial of all justice and love.
  • The difference between the virtue of hope and the emotion of hope.

 

Life of Christ 

This book has been hailed as the most eloquent of Fulton Sheen's writings, the fruit of many years of dedication and research. Filled compassion and brilliant scholarship, his recounting of the birth, life, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ is as dramatic and moving as the subject Himself. Here is a passionate portrait of the God-Man, the teacher, the healer, and most of all the Savior whose promise has sustained humanity for two millennia.

"It was not so much that His birth cast a shadow on His life, and led to His death," writes Sheen. "It was rather that the Cross was there from the beginning, and it cast its shadow backward to his birth."

With his customary insight and reverence, the author interprets the scripture and describes Christ not only in historical perspective but in exciting and contemporary terms; he sees in Christ's life modern parallels and timeless lessons. Sheen probes the hearts of many prominent New Testament figures -- Joseph and Mary, Peter and the disciples, Herod, Pilate, et al. -- shedding new light on age-old events. The whole adds up to a masterful study: a faithful blending of philosophy, history, and biblical exegesis.

This book has been a revelation to countless readers, as well as a source of inspiration and guidance. Every Christian should read and own this vivid retelling of the greatest life ever lived.
