The last words of the dying have long captured the popular imagination. No matter what emotion these words portray, they often express the heart of the person at the most poignant moment of his life.

Whichever particular "cross" may be the occasion for that death - sickness, accidental injury, malice of enemies, old age - it represents a splinter of Christ's own cross. So the final utterance may well be, in one way or another, some echo of Christ's own last words.
