The Paschal Mystery in Liturgy and what it means to us

We all experience loss, tragedy and heartache, and we turn to our faith for guidance and help. In a reflection published by the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, Joyce Ann Zimmerman suggests that our suffering not only leads us to God but helps us understand Jesus' life through the ebb and flow of our own life's natural rhythms. Jesus’ mission was centered around doing his father’s will as the obedient son. In the Paschal liturgy we unite with and conform ourselves to Jesus, offering ourselves to God. That offering is the central pulse of our daily lives. We experience this liturgy in our flesh because through the suffering and affliction in our own lives we experience the suffering and death of Jesus, and the miracle of resurrection.
