The words Jesus spoke from the cross, sometimes called the last seven words, are a time-honored source of meditation. Fr. Daniel P. Horan brings a fresh perspective to these sayings as he challenges readers to look at their lives through the lens of Jesus's suffering and death. He asks us to care for the poor and marginalized, as Jesus did, extending our love not just to those we love but to those most in need. By focusing on God's love for humanity expressed in the gift of Jesus, The Last Words of Jesus will serve as a rich source of meditaiton throughout the year.

In his preface, Horan writes: “In a world that remains irrevocably shaped by the suffering of the human condition, the misunderstanding between groups and cultures symbolized by the horrific events of September 11, we need to hear Christ’s words anew.” He gives us a different look into these words by drawing on works by other noted scholars and spiritual writers, then fashioning a view of these phrases that’s contemporary and thought-provoking.
An ideal Lenten companion, especially during Holy Week, The Last Words of Jesus will also serve as a useful meditation throughout the year on the deep love Jesus bore for us in taking on the human condition.
