Fr. Thomas Steinke, IVE
There is a natural or perhaps better, a supernatural progression in the spiritual life. One normally begins with lots of vocal prayers, going through many different prayer books and that is a good thing, very pleasing to God. Then, God will give the person a hunger for spiritual reading in addition to their other forms of prayer and then one learns things about their faith very much like they learn things in any other course of study.
Fr. Ted Trinko, IVE
“This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.” This is the most glorious and joyous day of the entire year because Christ has conquered death and the grave.
It is the triumph of resurrection over crucifixion, Life over death, Light over darkness, Love over hatred, of Faith over fear. This is the greatest miracle and the most important mystery of Christ’s life
The Catechism describes the Resurrection with very categorical terms (cf. CCC 638) It is the crowning truth of our faith in Christ, a central truth, fundamental to our faith, an essential part of it.
