What Jesus Saw from the Cross

Never has there been spiritual reading as powerful as What Jesus Saw from the Cross, the book that will intensify your love for Jesus by burning the events of His Passion into your memory and imagination.

Written early in the 21st century by Rev. A. G. Sertillanges, a priest who lived in Jerusalem, this acclaimed devotional classic gives you vivid and dramatic details not included in the Gospel: With Jesus, you'll be jostled by crowds as you enter Jerusalem, choke on the dust of the narrow streets, experience the exotic oriental smells of the city at festival time, share the Last Supper with the disciples, stare into the face of Jesus' accusers, and be there as He dies on the Cross.

Do you remember when Jesus begged His disciples to "watch one hour" with Him in the Garden of Gethsemane? With this book, you can watch not just one but many hours with Jesus.

Read it slowly and prayerfully. The vivid details and the gripping narrative will soon take over: you'll find yourself engaged in a personal retreat, an interior pilgrimage, and a profound meditation on the love and sufferings of Jesus on the Cross.

From Christ's cross, you will

  • Recall with Him the history of His people, while gazing lovingly on Mount Zion — the "City of David" — cradled within the walls of Jerusalem

  • Search the faces in the crowd below, finding there the malice of enemies, the dismay of friends, and the indifference of so many others

  • Find comfort in the tender love revealed in the sorrowful face of His Blessed Mother

  • Look across Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives, the road to Bethany, the Upper Room, the Garden of Gethsemane . . . and remember with Jesus the holy deeds He performed in each of these places

  • Recall the forty days in the desert, the marriage at Cana, the baptism by John, the calling of the Apostles, and the other events of His holy ministry, now brought to fearful consummation on the Cross.

    Lessons in How to Live from the Son of Man Himself

    We all know imperfection, only too well. We are conscious of human imperfection, sin, and failure on all sides. We have been trained to suspect hypocrisy under every façade. And yet there was one man who was perfectly good, a perfect man in whom no fault can be found. That man can show us that goodness is not an illusion, that holiness is worth striving for, that our existence has a meaning and a direction.

    Jesus Christ was the Perfect Man that philosophers and storytellers have searched for since the dawn of history. He was greater than storytellers have been able to imagine, more sublime than we had a right to hope.

    Our Lord was Perfect Man because he was also God. By being divine he was able to show us our human nature as he had desired to create it, with his infinite power. He reveals the nature of man to us, at the same time as he reveals God.

    We possess the historical and literary portrait of this Perfect Man in the Gospels, where we see him walking and talking among us, answering questions, healing and consoling the men and women who are drawn to him. The Gospels give us this portrait in order to provide us a model for our own lives, whoever we are and wherever we live.

    The Saints demonstrate that it is possible, by grace, to imitate that model and share in his perfection - not by copying his outward appearance, but by living in his spirit.

    It is Our Lord's example of love that calls us to become truly human. Love as he taught it was a new thing in the world. Love as he practiced it has made the world another place.
