Book Explains The Two Contradictory Seasonal Senses Of Sacrifice And Joy

Anthony Petracca

Through biblical reflections using various images, this book links Good Friday and Easter Sunday, showing that believers who embrace Christ crucified discover the power of His resurrection as they bear life's burdens on the way to the kingdom.

For Christians, there's a seeming chasm between the seasons of Lent and Easter, with two apparently contradictory seasonal senses of sacrifice and joy.

Within the pages of Making Lemonade ($21.49, paperback, 9781545624234; $9.99, e-book, 9781545626405), Anthony Petracca bridges the seeming disconnect.

“Through biblical reflections using various images, this book links Good Friday and Easter Sunday, showing that believers who embrace Christ crucified discover the power of His resurrection as they bear life's burdens on the way to the kingdom,” the author and Catholic priest states.

Petracca notes that tragedy and heartache fill the secular news.

“Believers, however, know that Jesus has conquered,” he says. “By accepting a share in His suffering, they not only triumph, but help bring His Kingdom to their corner of our wounded world. All bear some cross in life. Jesus, in carrying His, shows that following Him up Calvary always leads to the effective resurrection power that not only moves us through life, but enables us to help others as well.”

Anthony Petracca was ordained as a priest in 1985 with a master's degree in divinity. His previous book was SEEING AMERICA FIRST: TAKING THAT DREAM DRIVING VACATION TO SEE OUR NATIONAL TREASURES.
