    Just found this little poem the other day:

    ————————————————

    TO KEEP A TRUE LENT.
    by Robert Herrick

    IS this a fast, to keep
    The larder lean ?
    And clean
    From fat of veals and sheep ?

    Is it to quit the dish
    Of flesh, yet still
    To fill
    The platter high with fish ?

    Is it to fast an hour,
    Or ragg’d to go,
    Or show
    A downcast look and sour ?

    No ; ’tis a fast to dole
    Thy sheaf of wheat,
    And meat,
    Unto the hungry soul.

    It is to fast from strife,
    From old debate
    And hate ;
    To circumcise thy life.

    To show a heart grief-rent ;
    To starve thy sin,
    Not bin ;
    And that’s to keep thy Lent.

    Thank you, Father.

    This Bossuet reading helps me to understand the story in 3 gospels about Jesus healing the paralytic. I never really got the “which is easier to say-your sins are forgiven, or pick up your mat and walk” question, but it makes more sense now. Excellent.

    Thanks, Father, another perfect gem in the Gesamtkunstwerk of your Lentcasts!

    jameeka, could you elaborate, because I don’t understand that bit either?
