The Cries of Jesus from the Cross is a complete compilation of Archbishop Fulton Sheen's writings and reflections on Christ's last words. He shows how the seven words are a full catechism on the spiritual life from which you can learn to live the Beatitudes; avoid anger, envy, lust, and pride; and cultivate the virtues of fortitude, prudence, justice, and charity.
From the Introduction:
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 words of Jesus and Mary from seven books he wrote from 1933 to 1945.
- The Seven Last Words (1933)
- The Cross and the Beatitudes (1937)
- The Rainbow of Sorrow (1938)
- Victory Over Vice (1939)
- The Seven Virtues (1940)
- Seven Words to the Cross (1944)
- Seven Words of Jesus and Mary (1945)
This anthology has been arranged into seven chapters, each of which addresses one of the seven last words spoken by Christ on the Cross. And for each chapter, a passage from each of these books has been selected to provide seven unique reflections for study and meditation.
- The words spoken by Christ from the Cross
- The Beatitudes
- Sorrow and suffering
- The seven deadly sins
- Seven virtues
- Groups who reject the Church and Christ's teachings
- The unity of Jesus and Mary
These reflections may be read one after another as they appear in the book, or they may be read randomly as the reader chooses. Since this anthology comprises seven Sheen titles, the reader may also read one complete book at a time. For example, by reading the fourth reflection from each chapter of this anthology, the reader will have read Sheen's Victory over Vice; or by reading the third reflection from each chapter, he will have read The Rainbow of Sorrow.
