Item description for The Joy and the Challenge: Reflections on the Readings for the 50 Days of Easter (Three New Books for Easter and Beyond) by Laurin J. Wenig...
Overview For the seven weeks of the Easter season, the Church rejoices in its faith in the risen Lord. The joy implicit in the readings of this time gives energy and direction to our lives. Easter faith is also a challenging faith. It is not easy to live the gospel, to make a commitment to the crucified and risen Lord. Temptations, trials, and setbacks become stumbling blocks for us-just as they were for the early apostles. In his down-to-earth yet profound reflections Fr. Wenig brings us back to the first days of Christianity, when the disciples were struggling with the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and all that it meant for their lives. He helps us unfold that same mystery in our lives today and shows how we can face the challenge and savor the joy of the paschal mystery. The Joy And The Challenge: Reflections Of The Readings For The 50 Days Of Easter is an ideal companion for RCIA neophytes and leaders, for preachers, for catechists-indeed for all Christians, not only during the Easter season but all year long.
