I’ve latched onto the coming season as a retreat. Other Christians have their own favored terms.

As one who leans to pacifism, I don’t care much for the military imagery in religion, but I was struck most by this text at Mass this morning:

Grant, O Lord,
that we may begin with holy fasting
this campaign of Christian service,
so that as we take up battle against spiritual evils,
we may be armed with weapons of self-restraint.

So, MR3: good job on this predecessor to the prophet Joel.
