Description - Christ Our Passover Has Been Sacrificed by Mark G Boyer
Christ Our Passover Has Been Sacrificed examines the paschal mystery as it is presented throughout the liturgical year in The Roman Missal. After offering an in-depth definition of the paschal mystery the author guides the reader through Lent, Holy Week, Easter, Pentecost, and more, mining the riches of paschal mystery spirituality. Biblical accounts interpret the death and resurrection of Jesus; liturgical texts in The Roman Missal present a rich seam of spiritual truth for the reader to apply to his or her life. By remembering Jesus' death and resurrection, Roman Catholics celebrate daily dying and rising to new life. The author serves as a guide through paschal mystery spirituality, while also noting the mystical theology--reflections on experiences of God--represented by the prayers in The Roman Missal, particularly those dealing with Jesus' suffering, death, resurrection, ascension, and gift of the Spirit. Through reflections and meditation questions, readers are invited to name their own personally transforming mystical experiences, which connect them to God in deep levels and move them outward into the community to share spirituality. ""Boyer summons his readers--both the initiated and the neophyte--to seek a genuine experiential knowledge of the paschal mystery of Jesus by reflecting on the liturgical and biblical texts that embrace this mystery. Pondering these passages, we encounter a loving God whose Spirit invites us daily to an ever deeper transformative relationship with God and with one another. This book is a proven vade mecum for the journey."" --Pauline Nugent, Professor, Classics and Biblical Hebrew, Missouri State University ""Boyer, in a systematic and easily approachable way, lays out both the timeline of the paschal mystery, from Lent through Pentecost, and in the process ties it to individual transformation and a call to personal reflection that makes the liturgical sequence an invitation to renewed or enhanced spirituality."" --Victor Matthews, Dean, College of Humanities and Public Affairs, Missouri State Univerity ""Even people who are trying to get the most out of the Mass sometimes struggle to derive benefit from its many prayers filled with long sentences and generic images. Mark Boyer offers a pathway to clarity through a meditation on the paschal mystery. This book helps each one of us to enter more deeply into the sacrifice of Christ and to see its connection to our own passovers from day to day."" --Paul Turner, Pastor, Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Kansas City, Missouri ""The Church calls us to celebrate the church year as the basic framework for our spiritual lives. Here Mark Boyer, standing in the great liturgical tradition of Adrian Nocent, Louis Bouyer and others, unfolds the richness of the prayers, ritual and readings during the celebration of the paschal mystery from Palm Sunday to Pentecost . . . Boyer's work will help people recognize the wonderful and life-giving gift offered to us in the liturgies of Christ's paschal mystery."" --Harry Hagan, Associate Professor, Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology ""Boyer's insights into the Paschal Mystery are powerful and timely. This book complements Boyer's other books and every pastor, worship committee and lay bible study groups will find this book helpful addition to the spiritual experiences of the various liturgies of Holy Week."" --Vernon Meyer, Pastor, Sun Lakes United Church of Christ, Sun Lakes, Arizona Mark G.
