Gregory the Great: Encouragement in Lent

"For we who still stand on the peak of pride, when now we have begun to sense something of the fear of eternity, it is fitting that we fall down in penitence. And when we lie there, simply and humbly acknowledging our infirmity, we are ordered through the consolation of the divine word to rise to brave deeds."

Gregory the Great, Homily on Ezekiel 2:1-2

May Christ the Divine Word, by the power of the Holy Spirit, lift you to a brave journey with him through Holy Week.
