Voice of the Day: Alexander Schmemann

By Administrator 03-14-2007

Bright Sadness is the true message and gift of Lent: ... the sadness of my exile, of the waste I have made of my life; the brightness of God's presence and forgiveness, the joy of the recovered desire for God, the peace of the recovered home. Such is the climate of Lenten worship; such is its first and general impact on my soul.

- Alexander Schmemann
from "Great Lent"
