Publisher's Summary

Learn from award-winning professor and world-renowned theologian Fr. John Baldovin, SJ (PhD Yale), in this fascinating 12-lecture course on the liturgical seasons.
Lent, Holy Week, and Easter commemorate the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ. These 13 weeks are fundamental to the liturgical year, and they are a time of vital importance to Catholics. During this time of sacrifice and solemnity, Catholics are called to reflect on the presence of Christ in their lives.
Now, you are invited to join one of the world's leading liturgical scholars on this fascinating look at the vital seasons of Lent and Easter. Under the guidance of Boston College professor Fr. John Baldovin, you will discover the history, development, and practices of these holy seasons.
First, you will look at the history of Lent. You will look at its origins, tracing how it has come to be celebrated as a 40-day season. After looking at the practices and spiritual meaning of Lent, you will then look at Palm Sunday and Holy Week, paying special attention to the Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday). Finally, you will learn about the 50-day season of Easter, including the Sundays of Ascension and Pentecost.
Discover the significance of Lent, Holy Week, and Easter today.

Extremely Insightful

A very good guide during the Lenten & Easter Seasons. Best listened to at the start of Lent to help set the tone for the process of self-preservation and penance.
