The Beauty of the Paschal Mystery
Let’s take a look at the word Paschal. It comes from the Hebrew word PASACH which means to PASS OVER. This refers to the first Passover when the Lord passed over the homes of the Israelites while striking down the firstborn of Egypt. In that case, the Israelites smeared the blood of a lamb on their doorposts to signify their belief in the one true God. The sacrificing of an innocent lamb became the means of their salvation and their deliverance from captivity in Egypt. In the same way, God sent His Son to be our paschal lamb. The essence of our faith is this: that Jesus came to die for us, to free us from sin, and so that we might have a new and eternal life.

During these last days of Lent, let us set aside time to learn all we can about this Paschal Mystery. We hope you will take part in all three days of the Easter Triduum: Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.
