Our Lord spoke seven times from the Cross; these are called "His Seven Last Words." In His goodness, Our Blessed Lord left His thoughts on dying. He was representative of all humanity. In this sublime hour He called all His children to the pulpit of the Cross, and every word He said to them was set down for the purpose of an eternal publication and an undying consolation. There was never a preacher like the dying Christ; there was never a congregation like that which gathered about the pulpit of the Cross; there was never a sermon like the Seven Last Words. In the work Bishop Sheen expounds upon the Seven Last Words of Christ, elaborating on their meaning for Christians since the time of Christ to the present day.
