Love of God Fully Revealed in the Paschal Mystery

A Resurrectionist Vocation Minute for March 24, Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion

Love of God Fully Revealed in the Paschal Mystery

As you listened to Christ’s passion, what stood out to you? Was there a particular line that resonated with you?

Perhaps you connected with the centurion’s declaration, “Truly this man was God’s Son!” Or maybe you contemplated the significance of “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

Understanding Jesus’ suffering and death as part of the Paschal Mystery involves viewing them in the context of his Resurrection. For resurrectionists, the Paschal Mystery is at the heart of their message. Could it be that God is also calling you to spread this Good News with others?

“Our personal participation in the Paschal Mystery begins with our conversion, the acceptance of the Lord Jesus as our personal Savior, and our union with Him in Baptism, Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist. However, our conversion is a dynamic, lifelong process. We will constantly die to self (self-will, self-love, self-activity) in order to rise by the power of the Holy Spirit to a new life of love in Christ.”
