Encountering the Mystery of God

A Framework for Mystagogy form Easter to Pentecost

The Mystery of God.jpg

A RCIA Resource book by Br Patrick Cronin cfc
Special price: $20

The locus of the period of mystagogy is envisioned by the RCIA to take place at “the Sunday Masses of the Easter season” (RCIA, 247) in which the community’s gaze and prayers continue to be directed upon the newly baptized (RCIA, 248) who are the subject of weekly preaching. An excellent resource for such is given in Patrick Cronin’s  Encountering the Mystery of God: A Framework for Mystagogy from Easter to Pentecost (Mosaic, 2014).
