Today's Gospel, about the least letter of the Law not being done away with until all is fulfilled, got me thinking about the Parousia. And I found myself thinking of Lent in a new way. As our typical Lenten practices are nothing unusual, but really a part of our Christian living just intensified in view of Easter, isn't life itself a kind of Lent, with our day to day prayer, self-discipline and deeds of mercy preparing us for the great and eternal Easter, "as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ"?
