There are no "self-made" success stories in the spiritual life. No do-it-yourself kits for aspiring saints. That's why Living the Mysteries is ideal for a family member, friend, or fellow parishioner who recently received the sacraments of initiation -- baptism, confirmation, and the Eucharist. That's why it's perfect for a lifelong Catholic, too. The early Church had a process in which a teacher guided seekers through stages of inquiry and purification, culminating in a final phase called "mystagogy" -- MIST-a-go-gee -- "the revelation of the mysteries." Designed as a devotional -- and more -- for the fifty days between Easter and Pentecost, Living the Mysteries is a rich spiritual resource valuable any time of the year. You will treasure these timeless lessons on gaining eternal life. Book jacket.
