Chrysologus for Lent XLIII

Pray, brothers, that we also may die to the vices and be buried to temporal vanities, so that we may rise to eternity in Christ, and be found worthy of being placed on his right and hearing: "Come, blessed of my Father, receive teh kingdom which has been prepared for you from the beginning of the world."

Sermon 82, section 4. And this brings it to the end.

    Thank you for these. Often they've been the right word at the right time this Lent.

    St. Peter Chrysologus did turn out to be a good companion for Lent. I learned a few things, too; I hadn't realized, for instance, just how much he devotes to the importance of joining fasting to mercy until it kept coming up. And I very much like his view of the importance of singing as part of one's spiritual practice.
