Symbolon Session 6:  

The Paschal Mystery

"The Paschal Mystery" is a phrase we hear and use in the Mass and sacramental rites, but do we understand what it means in the greater story of Salvation, from the Passover in Egypt to the Last Supper and Crucifixion of Jesus?

See how Holy Week is commemorated in Rome. Hear about Jesus’ last days on earth and how those moments have been relived throughout the centuries in Church ceremony and art.

From the washing of the feet to the walk to Calvary, Pope Benedict XVI takes us step-by-step through these symbolic events as played out in the Eternal City.

 In this compelling and timely book, Vinny Flynn draws from Scripture, the teachings of the Church, and the Diary of St. Faustina to offer you an invitation and a road map so that God's Divine Mercy can transform your life.

If you're not yet convinced of the impact Divine Mercy can have on your life, if you've never heard of this message and devotion, or if you're curious to learn more about it, this book is perfect for you. 

Available for Kindle, Nook, Android and ipad

Well-known Catholic theologian Dr. Scott Hahn explains Christ's Paschal Sacrifice on the cross as the fulfillment of the traditional fourth cup used in the celebration of the Jewish Passover meal. He draws a symbolic parallel to the Last Supper and Christ's death on Calvary. Through his scholarly insights and important biblical connections, Mass will come alive for you as never before!

 Girls are bombarded with conflicting messages about what it means to be a true woman. They are told they're empowered to be individuals, but also expected to conform to the prevalent attitudes about sex and feminity. They're told to be free sexually, but no one mentions the physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences of that so-called freedom. God has a better and far more consistent plan for how young girls can become true women, and this YDisciple course will examine what that is. Candid and forthcoming, True Beauty: Womanhood could be the transforming moment that will redirect a girl's life. 

 In a world torn apart by persecution, war, and oppression, three children in Fatima, Portugal, were chosen by God to offer an urgent message of hope to the world. Based on the memoirs of the oldest seer, Lucia Santos, and many thousands of independent eye-witness accounts, The 13th Day dramatizes the true story of three young shepherds who experienced six apparitions of Our Lady between May and October 1917, which culminated in the final prophesied Miracle of the Sun on October 13. 

 Contraception and abortion were not originally part of the 1960s women’s movement. How did the women’s movement, which fought for equal opportunity for women in education and the workplace, and the sexual revolution, which reduced women to ambitious sex objects, become so united?

In Subverted, former Cosmopolitan writer Sue Ellen Browder documents for the first time how it all happened, in her own life and in the life of an entire country. As a long-time freelance writer for Cosmopolitan magazine, she wrote pieces meant to soft-sell unmarried sex, contraception, and abortion as the single woman’s path to personal fulfillment. She did not realize until much later that propagandists higher and cleverer than herself were influencing her thinking and her personal choices as they subverted the women’s movement.

 In this talk given to a group of women at the FOCUS national conference, Lisa Cotter debunks the myths of modern day stereotypical womanhood. Using insights from the late Pope St. John Paul II and the heroic example of modern-day saints, Lisa gets to the truth about what it means to be an authentic woman.
