Overview
In this book of meditations Father Raniero Cantalamessa reflects on Christ's passion, death, and resurrection.

Christ's journey to Easter is such an immensely rich source that homilists, liturgists and believers who wants to plumb its depths know the challenge is not about lack of content, but rather where to begin. Like an experienced guide who knows the territory and its many paths, Father Cantalamessa helps readers reach the spiritual center.

Reviews - What do customers think about Easter: Meditations on the Resurrection?

Deepening Appreciation of the Paschal Mystery  Nov 3, 2006
Fr. Cantalamessa offers in book form the meditations on the paschal mystery he gave to the Pontifical household in Lent of 2004. He approaches the subject from four perspectives: the letter (the facts), allegory (what to believe), morality (how we act), and the anagogical (what we aim at).

In the first section, he addresses the reasons Jesus was put to death and the errors in such treatments as Mel Gibson's, "The Passion of the Christ" movie, which blames the Jews for Christ's death. In the same discussion he talks about subsequent mistaken theories that Jesus favored the Zealot movement, an idea often used in support of "revolution theology" in the 1960s and `70s.

Such are the meditations Cantalamessa presents: complex and scholarly, but within reach for those who wish to deepen their appreciation of the paschal mystery.
