"While the book is clearly designed for the newly baptized (or received), it could certainly be a great tool for anyone seeking to keep Easter by deepening their own experience. It is easily adapted for either group or individual use...This book is clearly a workbook, meant to be interacted with, but avoids looking like one. It offers those who reflect best with a pen in hand enough room to write, without lines that will never be filled in (I speak from experience here)...In our culture, Easter seems often to be the beginning of a mad dash to the end of the school year. This book is an invitation to slow down and savor the mysteries of Easter."  Victoria M. Tufano, Catechumenate, September 2007

"In this work, Chriszt has developed a pattern of refection that is readily accessible to the neophytes  and captivating enough for long-time Catholics...The 50 Days is an excellent resource and a fitting gift for neophytes, godparents, families — and homilists." — Diana Macalintal, Forum Newsletter, Winter 2007

""It makes me want to be a new Catholic! What mystagogy means and how to go about mystagogical reflection seems to elude many people, and Dennis Chriszt's reflective process...will help those who use it to do mystagogy — even if the word never passes their would also be an effective tool for homilists who want to develop an authentically mystagogical approach to preaching." — Bernadette Gasslein, Celebrate!, January-February 2008, Vol. 47, No. 1
