Item description for The Fifty Days of Joy: Easter Reflections for New Catholics by C. Pp S. Chriszt...
The latest addition to WLP's "Fountain of Life" series (Resources for Christian Initiation). This collection of reflections is designed for those who have been baptized or received into the Catholic Church at Easter. Taking its cue from the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, this book will truly enable new Catholics to deepen their grasp of the paschal mystery. The book draws on the Church s ancient model of mystagogy by helping the reader to reflect deeply on the celebration of the sacraments of initiation. You'll find reflections for each day of the Easter Octave as well as for all the Sundays of the Easter season, the Ascension of the Lord, and Pentecost. Author Dennis Chriszt, C.PP.S., employs a wealth of scripture to facilitate a conversation between the sacred word of God and the lived experience of the new Catholic. The complete texts of the scriptures used for the reflections appear in this book, making it a stand-alone resource for personal prayer. The Fifty Days of Joy is also a helpful resource for initiation ministers who facilitate group sessions during the period of mystagogy. The front of the book has an area in which to inscribe the name of the new Catholic, the parish, and the date of initiation. An ideal gift for all those initiated at Easter! Dennis Chriszt, C.PP.S., is a priest with the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. He directs Precious Blood Parish Missions, the special formation program of his community, preaches parish missions and retreats, and conducts workshops on the Christian Initiation of Adults.
