6 – The Paschal Mystery: The Mystery of Jesus’ Death & Resurrection
Through Jesus’ death on the cross, God reveals himself most profoundly as the God who is love. Christ’s sacrificial love saves us from sin and shows us the pathway to true human happiness. We are made to live like Christ, in total, self-giving love.
What is Advent?
Advent is a penitential season and a time of preparation for the Christmas season, beginning four Sundays before Christmas, and ending on Christmas Eve.
What is Lent?
Lent is a penitential season and a time of preparation for the Easter season. It lasts 40 days—excluding Sundays—beginning with Ash Wednesday, and ending with the Triduum (three days) of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. During this time, we engage in prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
Did Jesus die on the cross?
Yes, Jesus in His Human Nature and Material Body did die on the cross, and most of his followers abandoned Him. Mary, the Mother of Jesus–John, the beloved Disciple–and some women, among them Mary Magdalene and Mary, the wife of Clopas, remained with Him until the end.
What happened after Jesus died?
Scripture tells us that on the third day, Jesus rose from the dead and came to tell his frightened disciples that He forgave them for abandoning Him. He also told them to share the grace of forgiveness with others. He asked them to tell all people about Him so that they too could share in God’s love.
What does “Resurrection” mean?
Resurrection means that Jesus rose from the dead and that He is now glorified at sits at the right hand of God the Father.
Has anyone else experienced this gift of Resurrection?
The Catholic Church believes that all faithful people will be raised in bodily glory at the end of time. We also believe that the Blessed Virgin Mary already shares in this gift.
What do we call this special grace granted to Mary?
We call it the Assumption of Mary which is celebrated each year on August 15th.
What is Pentecost?
Pentecost means “Fifty Days.” On this feast we celebrate The Holy Spirit coming down upon the disciples like tongues of fire Fifty Days after the Ascension of Jesus.
What are the colors for each liturgical season?
Ordinary Time = Green, Advent and Lent = Purple, Christmas and Easter = White (Gold)
