SESSION 1: MYSTERY
April 4 - April 10, 2021
How can God be justly praised? Is our prayer sufficient for God? How does faith help a person pray? Why is the Mass a mystery? This session will explore the theological meaning of mystery and the action of entering into the mystery of the Eucharistic Prayer as an act of faith.
