Sacramental Limits and A Devotional Journey Into Easter Despite Lockdown (April 4)

As we enter into Holy Week, Catholics everywhere will mark the holiest days of the liturgical year at home, and unable to go to our churches and cathedrals. While the coronavirus pandemic has likely increased our prayer life, it has crippled many Catholics’ sacramental life. Father Raymond De Souza, Register columnist, joins us to talk about the impact that limiting the sacraments has on bishops, priests and the faithful. Then we turn to how to best celebrate a prayerful and solemn Holy Week and Easter from home. We talk to Christopher Carstens about his new book, Devotional Journey into the Easter Mystery.
