Sintesi dell'editore

Join world-renowned theologian Fr. John Baldovin, S.J. to take an in-depth look at these fascinating liturgical seasons.

Lent, Holy Week, and Easter commemorate the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. A time period of vital importance to Catholics, these 13 weeks are fundamental to the liturgical year. During this time of sacrifice and solemnity, we are called to reflect on the presence of Christ in our lives. 

Now, you are invited to join one of the world’s leading liturgical scholars on this fascinating journey into the vital seasons of Lent and Easter. Through 12 engrossing audio lectures, you will discover the history, development, and practices in these holy seasons.

First, you will focus on the history of Lent. You will look at its origins, tracing how we have come to celebrate it as a 40-day season. After examining the practices and spiritual meaning of this season of sacrifice, you will then turn to Palm Sunday and Holy Week, paying special attention to the Triduum. Finally, you will learn about the 50-day season of Easter, including the Sundays of Ascension and Pentecost.

Refresh your understanding of the significance of Lent, Holy Week, and Easter with Fr. Baldovin today.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

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.

Engaging and informative

Note: I am “in the process” of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and shall be coming into full communion with the Catholic Church this Easter Vigil.

I thought this would be a nice introduction to Lent, and it is, but it is so much more. Church history and reformation of the liturgy is put into context, and the various rituals for catechumens and candidates during the Lenten season are interwoven into the whole. Fr. Baldovin is that rare scholar who is able to communicate his accumulated knowledge without dumbing it down. I recommend this book particularly to members of RCIA, their faith companions, and sponsors, but anyone at all interested in Catholicism and/or Lent will find it rewarding.

Learned Tons

Although this is told from the Roman Catholic perspective, there is insight to be learned no matter what Christian denomination you form your faith through. It was very historically interesting, and explained a great deal of the ritual experiences in relationship to the liturgical foundations of the season.
