This lesson introduces children to the relationship of Lent to the mystery of Easter as well as how the day of Easter overflows into the season of Easter. It is best told in preparation for Ash Wednesday or the beginning of Lent. The six weeks of Lent are a solemn time, overflowing with meaning, when we view life from the perspective of our existential limits and the sacrifice of Christ. Follow The Mystery of Easter with presenting each of the lessons of the Faces of Easter during the following weeks of Lent.
