Publisher Description

"It is Finished." (John 19:30)

Meditations on the Sixth Word from the Cross by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen 

"The perfectly sized meditation book (5.5 x 8.5") for use at home or church." (Special 'JMJ' Edition)

For years, Archbishop Sheen gave a series of powerful presentations on Christ's Passion and His seven last words from the Cross. As a Scripture scholar, Archbishop Sheen knew full well the power contained in preaching Christ crucified. With St. Paul, he could say, "For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified" (1 Cor. 2:2).

During his last recorded Good Friday address in 1979, Archbishop Sheen spoke of having given this type of reflection on the subject of Christ's seven last words from the Cross "for the fifty-eighth consecutive time." Whether from the young priest in Peoria, Illinois, the university professor in Washington, D.C., or the bishop in New York, Sheen's messages were sure to make an indelible mark on his listeners.

Given their importance and the impact they had on society, it seemed appropriate to bring together in this anthology some of Archbishop Sheen's meditations on the Seven Last Words Our Blessed Lord spoke from the Cross on Calvary.

This anthology has been arranged to provide nine unique reflections for study and meditation on the words "It is Finished." (John 19:30)

These meditations are taken from several books and articles written by Sheen between 1933 and 1945.

The Seven Last Words (New York: Century, 1933)

The Seven Last Words and the Our Father (Huntington, Indiana: Our Sunday Visitor 1935)

Calvary and the Mass (New York: P. J. Kenedy and Sons, 1936)

The Cross and the Beatitudes (New York: P. J. Kenedy and Sons, 1937)

The Rainbow of Sorrow (New York: P. J. Kenedy and Sons, 1938)

Victory over Vice (New York: P. J. Kenedy and Sons, 1939)

The Seven Virtues (New York: P. J. Kenedy and Sons, 1940)

Seven Words to the Cross (New York: P. J. Kenedy and Sons, 1944)

Seven Words of Jesus and Mary (New York: P. J. Kenedy and Sons, 1945)

Each meditation will offer the reader a mini-retreat on the following topics.

First Meditation - A reflection on the words "It is Finished".

Second Meditation - A reflection on a passage from the Lord's Prayer. (Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us).

Third Meditation - A reflection on a part of the Mass (The Ita, Missa Est).

Fourth Meditation - A reflection on one of the Beatitudes (Blessed are the Peace-Makers).

Fifth Meditation - A reflection about a "planned universe".

Sixth Meditation - A reflection addressing one of the seven deadly sins (Sloth).

Seventh Meditation - A reflection on the virtues (Justice).

Eighth Meditation - A reflection on dealing with individuals who reject the Church and Christ's teachings (A word to the Sensationalists).

Ninth Meditation - A reflection on the unity of Jesus and Mary and the "The Hour".

As the readers ponder these reflections, they might have to pause for a moment or two over a sentence that is full of deep meaning that stirs the heart.
