  • What Jesus Saw From the Cross
  • A beloved, best-selling book
  • Inspiring and powerful
  • Vividly brings the last days of Jesus to life

Never has there been spiritual reading as powerful as What Jesus Saw from the Cross, the book that will intensify your love of Jesus by burning the events of His Passion into your memory and imagination.

Written early in this century by Rev. A. G. Sertillanges, a priest who lived in Jerusalem, this acclaimed devotional classic gives you vivid and dramatic details not included in the Gospel: With Jesus, you'll be jostled by crowds as you enter Jerusalem, choke on the dust of the narrow streets, experience the exotic oriental smells of the city at festival time, share the Last Supper with the disciples, stare into the face of Jesus' accusers, and be there as He dies on the Cross.

Do you remember when Jesus begged His disciples to "watch one hour" with Him in the Garden of Gethsemane? With this book, you can watch not just one but many hours with Jesus.

Read it slowly and prayerfully. The vivid details and the gripping narrative will soon take over: you'll find yourself engaged in a personal retreat, an interior pilgrimage, and a profound meditation on the love and sufferings of Jesus on the Cross.


From Christ's Cross, you'll:

  • Recall with Him the history of His people, while gazing lovingly on Mount Zion — the "City of David" — cradled within the walls of Jerusalem
  • Search the faces in the crowd below, finding there the malice of enemies, the dismay of friends, and the indifference of so many others
  • Find comfort in the tender love revealed in the sorrowful face of His Blessed Mother
  • Look across Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives, the road to Bethany, the Upper Room, the Garden of Gethsemane . . . and remember with Jesus the holy deeds He performed in each of these places
  • Recall the forty days in the desert, the marriage at Cana, the baptism by John, the calling of the Apostles, and the other events of His holy ministry, now brought to fearful consummation on the Cross.

    A Must Read for Lent

    I read this spiritual gem two Lenten seasons back and it remains the best and most influential book I've read. It was eye opening.

    What Jesus Saw......

    Not what was expected. More a geography and political description of the events surrounding the crucifixion.

    What Jesus Saw from the Cross

    Although I have not read all the book I find it very interesting. I have been to Jerusalem so have an idea of the lay of the land. There are certain facts though that I did not know.

    40 days of Lent with Jesus was excellent, beautiful,awesome!!!

    I read excerpts of this book throughout all of Lent and it was the best way to get all the benefits from it. Taking it piece by piece slowly, allowing meditation each day. It was fascinating to read the history, not just the hours on the cross. It covers the relationships with His friends and family. Thank you to The Catholic Company for sharing this wonderful read with your email customers each day this Lent!GOD bless all!
