New York Times bestselling author James Martin, SJ, offers a vivid and compelling portrait of Jesus based on the Messiah's dramatic last words on the cross. Father Martin shows how deeply Jesus understands our struggles and why we can turn to him completely—in mind, heart, and soul. Based on Martin's homilies at New York's St. Patrick's Cathedral on Good Friday 2015, each meditation reflects on one of the seven traditional sayings: 

"Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing."    
"Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise."
                                "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"                        
here is your son. . . . Here is your mother."                          
"Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
"I am thirsty."                                                                                                            
"It is finished."

With warmth, wisdom, and grace that infuse all of his writings, Father Martin explains why Jesus's words from the cross are so important for the life of the believer. For Jesus's final statements show how deeply Jesus understands our human struggles and why we can turn to him completely, sharing all our hopes and fears with him. 

"Spiritually rewarding and uplifting."                                                           
Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York

"A short but powerful work."
