A letter from The Rev. Dr. Paul L. Gaston, Trinity Cathedral’s Acting Dean
The Anglican poet and priest, George Herbert, refers to Lent as a “deare feast.” Ever the thoughtful pastor, he understands our limitations in Lent even as he encourages our efforts in words that could apply just as easily to the challenges before us.
It ‘s true, we cannot reach Christ’s fortieth day;
Yet to go part of that religious way,
Is better than to rest:
We cannot reach our Savior’s purity;
Yet are bid, Be holy ev’n as he.
In both let ‘s do our best.
