Which action by Christ saves us? … Is it the sacrifice of his body on the cross or the resurrection? A better way to think of the saving act of Christ is to think of it in terms of the “Paschal Mystery.” “The Paschal Mystery has two aspects: by his death, Christ liberates us from sin; by his Resurrection, he opens for us the way to a new life” (CCC 654). Both the sacrifice of his body on the cross and the resurrection are a part of the same mystery that saves us.
