A link on Lent

I have come to appreciate Walter Russel Mead on many topics.  Here he has a short take on Lent.

“Those smudges you see on some foreheads today aren’t really about doom and gloom; they are about a hope so bright and an optimism so astounding that even as we reflect on our sins and on the decay and the grave at the end of our earthly lives, we look forward to the prospect of everlasting life in the presence of inexhaustible love.”
