We leave tomorrow. So eat. Drink. Like Christ himself, enjoy the fatness of God’s house, and imbibe from the river of his delights. The desert road is long, and dry, and barren, and we have been given the lushness of the river, the joy of repentance, to sustain us in the coming dryness. Today, God offers us repentance, and so offers us absolution, and so offers us one final night of feast. Alleluia.
-Br. Lucas Hall, SSJE
