In Lent

Lent is the time of our desperate longing for mercy and compassion. And it may seem that, given the terror and suffering and contradiction that seem so pervasive, the Bridegroom, the Lord Jesus, is absent from our world. It is we, more often than not, that are far away from Him, far away from one another and from our truest selves. But Mercy, He who is Himself all mercy and all compassion, is constantly running after us, longing to bring us home. 

Let us constantly open our hearts to Him.
