Perhaps the most difficult period of RCIA to coordinate is the Period of Mystagogia.  It is designed to be a time for Neophytes to grasp the meaning of the Paschal Mystery and make it part of their lives.  Is Your Mystagogia Missing? is a ten page resource from the Diocese of Lansing, Michigan which offers suggestions for breaking open the Easter Vigil experience, things to do with Neophytes during the Easter Season, and catechetical and service suggestions.  Borrow a copy from the Sidney Media Center at sidneymediacenter@catholiccincinnati.org or find it on the web site of the Federation of the Diocesan Liturgical Commissions at www.FDLC.org.
