The Seven Last Words, by Bishop Fulton Sheen is a book written approximately one-half century ago. Few books can match it for either retreat or Lenten spiritual reading. The statements the Gospels attribute to Christ on Calvary are reflected upon and prayed over. This is a work of devotion meant to stimulate our fidelity to Christ and challenge us to love one another over more heroically. The truly cosmic implications of the shattering events of Calvary are brought to the fore in these stirring reflections.
