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.

I would recommend this book to any person whether Christian or otherwise. It is a great insight into Jesus and his last moments on the cross.
Jesus's Last Words and their Meaning
Thank you Fr. Martin for the opportunity to draw closer to our Lord. I decided to gift myself with this on Good Friday and it is a blessing and a grace.
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.
