«The most convincing synthesis of the novelty Jesus brought into the world are the words that He pronounced on the Cross. At that very moment everything was essential and every word cost a huge sacrifice: for this reason those words are the true “Spiritual Testament” of Jesus.» – from the Introduction

«Father, forgive them, they know not what they do» (Luke 23:34); «Amen, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise» (Luke 23:43); «Woman, behold, your son. Behold, your mother» (John 19:26-27); «“Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”» (Matthew 27:46); «I thirst» (John 19:28); «It is finished!» (John 19:30), «Father, into your hands I commend my spirit» (Luke 23:46): the last phrases of Jesus are enclosed in few and astonishing words, which mark the path and thought of every Christian, His spiritual heritage. In this new book, Cardinal Comastri analyzes these last words of Jesus within the context of the Gospel they are drawn from and highlights all their current relevance and value as spiritual guide for every Christian. An ideal text for personal reflection and meditation, guided by the words of one of the most profound spirituality authors.
