On the sanctoral seasons
As we enter Septuagesima, we consider the difference between the Christmas cycle and the Easter cycle: the former deals with light, the latter with life; the former forms the emotions, the latter, the will; the former is hopeful and yearning, the latter, grave and determined. Thus we begin the trek of training to turn from the mind set of the first laborers in the vineyard who had an evil eye and covetousness, and learn instead to treasure the penny of heavenly grace. Tuesday's sermon.
