Brand new title from Archimandrite Zacharias of the Community of Saint John’s in Essex, England and founded by Saint Sophrony.
As a saving light, Great Lent renews our orientation in our life. It initiates us into the passage from this world of corruption to the blessed Kingdom revealed by Christ. By obedience to the immaculate Church and in union with all her members, we undertake the striving that she recommends to her children. We fix our gaze on the end of the way, on the Cross and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus, from which flows forth the grace of salvation for all mankind. Humbly and voluntarily, through fasting, self reproach and prayer, we offer to God the poor sacrifice of our deadening to sin. We gain a little taste of death, so as to attract the touch of the Holy of Holies, the breath of the all-holy Spirit, which will strengthen our nature to 'celebrate an eternal Passover', making us partakers of unspeakable joy and of a 'better resurrection' in the Kingdom of our Lord, Whose first appearing we have loved.
