Lent is a time for pondering the death of Jesus and what that means to us. The last words of Christ, often called the seven last words, are a time-honored source of meditation and are much written about and discussed. In his book, Last Words of Jesus A Meditation on Love and Suffering, author Fr. Daniel Horan challenges the reader to meditate on the cross and to look at their own lives through the lens of the suffering and death of Jesus, to live as Jesus did always concerned with the poor and marginalized. He encourages the reader to extend his love to not just those we love but, most importantly, to those in need. Last Words of Jesus has an introduction that looks at the Franciscan perspective on the cross of Christ and then continues with a chapter dedicated to each of the seven words or phrases which Jesus uttered on the cross. An afterword ties up the ideas presented in the chapters. Last Words of Jesus encourages the reader to focus on the love of God for humanity as expressed in the gift of Jesus which gives the reader a rich source of meditation to turn to time and time again throughout the year but especially during the season of Lent.
