REJOICE!
That’s what this Sunday in Lent calls us to do! Even as Lent calls us to look long and hard at our sinfulness, it also casts our attention squarely on the cross of Christ! The bloody, shameful crucifixion of our Lord is not pretty, but it is beautiful! It is the most beautiful act of love in human history! Even in Lent, the joy of Christ’s cross bursts through!

REJOICE! “God so loved the world that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Joy is different than happiness. In Christ you have reason for joy, whatever struggles darken your days. In Baptism your sins were washed away. In Absolution your sins are forgiven. In the Sacrament of the Altar the risen Lord sends away your sins. Along with serious repentance, God give you serious joy this Lenten season.
