Easter Week – Remembering Triduum backwards 3

DSC_0044Easter Vigil:          Our baptismal immersion.

Brothers and sisters:  Are you unaware that we who were baptized into Christ Jesus
were baptized into his death?  We were indeed buried with him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life.  Romans 6:3-11

Adult baptism at the Easter Vigil plays out St. Paul’s theology of submersion into Christ’s death, burial, and ‘already-but-not-yet’ manifestation of his resurrection.

We are immersed into the Risen Christ, seated at the right hand of the Power, and through the power of the Holy Spirit we are transubstantiated into this divine reality.

How?  What have you discovered so far in your own good life about the paschal mystery, the dying and rising of Christ, and how it plays out?

Final Question:  How does this reality of baptism play out in the Eucharist experientially rather than allegorically?  In other words, what is it about Eucharist that immerses us into Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection and sends us forth as citizens of the New Creation?
