People hold candles during the Easter Vigil service at Westminster Cathedral on April 4, 2015, in London, England. Also known as the Paschal Vigil, the nocturnal liturgy celebrating the victory of Jesus Christ over death was for early Christians a night full of anticipation and dramatic symbols, rites, and singing. On page 10, contributing editor Mike Aquilina takes us back to the experience of the primitive Church to understand why the vigil was “the night of nights” for those Christians — and why it should still be for us, too. On page 16, Caitlin Yoshiko Kandil speaks to local catechumens about their road to conversion and why they’re looking forward to the “new life” of the baptism they’ll receive at this year’s Easter Vigil.
