"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.
