Easter. Meditations on the Resurrection.

2006 – Liturgical Press. Collegeville, Minnesota.

Raniero Cantalamessa In this book of meditations Father Raniero Cantalamessa reflects on Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection from four distinct starting points. First presented as a Lenten retreat in Rome, together with the Good Friday homily in St. Peter’s Basilica, the result is a rich and multifaceted exploration of this central mystery of the Christian faith.

Christ’s journey to Easter is such an immensely rich source that homilists, liturgists, and every believer who wants to plumb its depths know the challenge is not about lack of content, but rather where to begin. Like an experienced guide who knows the territory and its many paths well, Father Cantalamessa helps readers reach the spiritual center.

His varying points of departure become stirring reflections on Easter. They culminate in a powerful meditation on the Servant Song in the light of the Passion narratives-and the message of the victorious Christ.
