Publisher's Summary

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's 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; and much more.

Terrible narrator

I would be interested in hearing this book read by someone else. His voice and tone was very demeaning, spoken as if he was reading to children.

Spectacular.

Fulton Sheen delivers again. It's not the same, hearing someone else read his words, but WHAT Sheen says is so poignant, so rich, so enlightening! Al Kessel does a decent job as the narrator. Sheen always manages to draw me deeper into the Mysteries of our Faith.

Excellent work of Bishop Sheen

The scope and depth of this book is worth a lifetime of study and learning about one’s life and relationship with Jesus Christ.
