keepingIncarnatethePaschalMysteryHappy Easter! In this season of new birth, we feature “Keeping Incarnate the Paschal Mystery” by the teacher of Christian spirituality, Fr. Ron Rolheiser. In this 55 minute DVD, Fr. Rolheiser captivates his retreatants with our Christian calling to continually live the Paschal Mystery. He applies our dear Lord’s dying, rising, appearing among the disciples, ascending and giving the Holy Spirit to the realities of daily human life through compelling stories and accessible theology. Readers of The Holy Longing will recognize the stages of Good Friday, Easter Sunday, the Forty Days, Ascension and Pentecost. Fr. Rolheiser teaches that the “Holy Spirit is not generic” and appears differently in the context of our dynamic life circumstances. The gifts of the Spirit enable us to engage in the hard work of the Forty Days and the Ascension – the adjustment to new realities and the intentional release of former ones. His message is ultimately one of Easter joy in his emphasis on the interiority of happiness and the invitation to let go of the “if only” fantasies that block our daily living of the Paschal Mystery.
