Product Description

Editor: Matthew Becklo

"Christ, our Paschal Lamb, has been sacrificed."
In his Letter to the Corinthians, St. Paul expresses the greatest mystery of the Catholic faith, which Christians around the world ponder and celebrate every year during the Lent and Easter seasons: Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection.

With a series of reflections on Lenten themes like death, temptation, repentance, prayer, fasting, and almsgiving; the events of the Paschal Mystery of Christ recalled during Holy Week; and the joy of the Gospel reflected in the Easter season, readers are offered a week-by-week guide through these sacred seasons in this new booklet from Word on Fire.

The Paschal Mystery is the ideal companion book for parishes, families, and individuals seeking a deeper encounter with Christ during Lent and Easter. It includes significant Scripture passages, extended readings from Bishop Robert Barron, hymns, poetry, prayers, and additional reflections from across two thousand years of Catholic tradition.

This book includes:

  •   Key passages for Lent and Easter from Sacred Scripture.
  •   Extended readings from Bishop Robert Barron.
  •   Brief theological and spiritual reflections from many of the heroes of Word on Fire, including St. Athanasius, St. Augustine, Fulton Sheen, St. Irenaeus, Edith Stein, St. Thomas Aquinas, Hans Urs   von Balthasar, Flannery O'Connor, and more.
  •   Additional prayers from St. Francis of Assisi, Dorothy Day, Thomas à Kempis, the Didache, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Alphonsus de Liguori, St. Gregory of Narek, and more.
  •   A new version of the Word on Fire “Stations of the Cross,” including directions for formal group prayer and accompanying words from the Stabat Mater in both English and Latin.
  •   Classic hymns like Dies Irae, O Filii et Filiae, and Regina Caeli in both Latin and English.
  •   Poems from Gerard Manley Hopkins, Thomas Merton, St. John Henry Newman, G.K. Chesterton, St. Teresa of Avila, Dante, Paul Claudel, Pope St. John Paul II, and St. John of the Cross.
  •   Fifteen prayers from St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the patroness of Word on Fire.

This is an extraordinary resource and I have been loving every page of it. The collection of readings, hymns, and prayers are rich, deep, and harmoniously combined. Though it's not a daily reader there is enough material for a week's worth of contemplation. Highly recommended!
