The revised Roman Calendar emphasizes the unity of the Easter Triduum (Holy Thursday evening to Easter Sunday evening) and considers the Easter Vigil to be the center of the three-day commemoration. But more yet can be done on a pastoral and liturgical level to make the Easter Vigil take root in the life of the people and in the traditions and new customs of the Church.

The contributors to this work articulate the extraordinary possibilities latent in the Vigil for celebrating communal life and deepening spiritual understanding. They also provide a specific plan for a more experiential celebration of this "feast of feasts."
