The Second Week of Lent
How is it that, when there is so little time to enjoy your presence, you hide from me?
Teresa of Avila, Sixteenth Century
The inexpressible glory of the supreme Being could not be seen pure and unveiled by bodily eyes, for Scripture says, No one can see my face and live. the only-begotten Word of God had therefore to become like one of us in our weakness by clothing himself in a human body.
Cyril of Alexandria, Fifth Century
The annual observance of lent is the special season for the ascent of the holy mountain of Easter.
Ceremonial of Bishops
