A retreat, a pilgrimage, and a holy hour – all in one book! These pages will intensify your love of Jesus by burning the events of His Passion into your memory and imagination.
With Jesus, you'll be jostled by crowds as you enter Jerusalem, choke on the dust of the narrow streets, smell the exotic scents of the city at festival time, share the Last Supper with the disciples, stare into the faces of His accusers, and look down at the milling crowd as He dies on the Cross.
So intense is this account of Jesus' last hours – and so faithful to the Gospels – that countless eminent Christians use it as spiritual reading before praying or to prepare themselves for Mass. Try it yourself: read just one chapter slowly and prayerfully. The vivid details and gripping narrative will soon take over: you'll find yourself engaged in a moving personal retreat, a stunning inner pilgrimage, and an unforgettable encounter with Jesus' tender love for you as He freely gave His life for you on the Cross.
"I am happy to recomment What Jesus Saw from the Cross. In it, we enter into the Heart of Jesus during His Passion and discover how precious we are to Him." –Mother Teresa of Calcutta
