Glenstal Companion to the Easter Vigil

 Edited by Luke Macnamara, OSB, and Martin Browne, OSB

In these pages, the reader will come to appreciate how the extended reading of passages from the Old Testament, in the light of the Paschal Candle, creates a sense of expectancy. The Easter Vigil readings were all chosen specifically because of the light they shed on the central reality of the Christian faith – what the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ mean for the salvation of all peoples. Spending some time and effort on deepening the encounter with God’s Word in these texts will surely enrich the reader’s experience of the Vigil.
