The Divine Pattern

The Divine Pattern


This episode explores two theological ideas: The Sacramental Principle and the Mystery of Christ made present in the sacraments. 



This episode explores the use of the word "mystery" in Catholic theology as understood from the perspective of the study of the sacraments and the liturgy. There are some lengthy quotes from Fr. Odo Casel who influenced Vatican II and the Catechism of the Catholic Church (and even Joseph Ratzinger!).
The Mystagogical Fathers catechize a certain way (moving from the visible rites to the invisible), catechize at different times, and provide a theological understanding of sacramental initiation that helps us to understand that the catechesis was mystagogical but the primary mystagogy was the sacrament itself and an important aspect of the process was good liturgy.
