Integration of Catholic intellectual tradition is especially difficult in professional (in this case legal) education. Professional education in the United States often developed according to pragmatic needs without consideration of connections to the long history of liberal (specifically Jesuit) education. Forming and renewing those connections is both an exciting intellectual and pedagogical project and a remedy to the real needs of students enrolled in professional education. The ideas of “narrative rationality” and “sacramental spirit,” facilitate reflection on the central Christian narrative of the Paschal Mystery. These reflections can assist both teachers and students involved in professional education to deepen their understanding of service, suffering, and the ability for self-abandonment that Mary exhibits at the foot of the cross.

Keywords:   Easter Triduum, Jesuit education, legal education, narrative rationality, Paschal Mystery, professional education, sacramental spirit
