Lent is a beautiful ‘time of grace’ (2 Cor 6:2), where the predominant image is that of a loving father longing
to embrace us in love and mercy (Lk 15). This love and mercy of the Father becomes tangible to us in the
person of Jesus. St. John succinctly summarizes it in his Gospel: ‘God so loved the world that He gave his
only Son, …’ (3:16). Let us keep alive this image of the loving and merciful father throughout this holy
season of Lent, so that we can immerse ourselves in this ‘time of grace’.
