The Paschal Mystery, Jesus’ life, death, and Resurrection, is a living reality. It is the promise of life that we receive at Baptism and it continues to draw us into union with God. We experience this union in the most profound way when we receive Jesus in Holy Communion. The collection of readings in The Paschal Mystery: A Primary Source Reader aims to help students come to know Jesus and build a relationship with him that grows ever more loving and ever more life-giving.

 Within this reader you will find writings from the following sources:

  • John Donne
  • Saint Irenaeus
  • Saint Bernard of Clairvaux
  • Saint John Baptist de La Salle
  • Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
  • Joyce Rupp, OSM
  • C. S. Lewis
  • Cardinal Joseph Bernardin
  • M. Basil Pennington
  • The United States Catholic Catechism for Adults
  • Second Vatican Council
  • Blessed John Paul II

This text is the perfect complement to courses on the Paschal Mystery, especially those that correspond to the U.S. Catholic Bishops’ high school curriculum framework course titled “The Mission of Jesus Christ (The Paschal Mystery).”
