Seven Words of Jesus and Mary: by Fulton J. Sheen
Author: Fulton J. Sheen
|Lessons on Cana and Calvary |
This inspirational classic from one of the most popular and best-loved Catholic prelates of the 20th century interprets the relationship between the seven recorded words that Our Blessed Mother spoke in the Gospels and the seven last words of Jesus as he hung on the cross. Intimately related, these words speak volumes on issues of hope, love, and forgiveness.
From Cana, where Mary set the stage for her Son's first miracle to Jesus' last words from the cross on Calvary, this book analyzes the Gospel story from the intertwined perspectives of Mother and Son, offering solace and solutions to the fears and dilemmas of today's Christian.
In his usual down-to-earth yet penetrating style, Archbishop Sheen compares each of Our Lord's seven words with Our Blessed Mother's chronologically corresponding words, reflecting, in turn, on the value of ignorance, the secret of sanctity, confidence, the search for religious meaning, the purpose of life, and more.
It is interesting, instructive, and in no way coincidental that Jesus spoke only seven times on Calvary, and that his mother is recorded as speaking only seven times in the Gospels. As Bishop Sheen eloquently states: "Now that the Sun was out, there was no longer need of the moon to shine. Now that the Word has spoken, there was no longer need of words."
