Lent ‘When the fast makes its appearance, like a kind of spiritual springtime, let us as soldiers burnish our weapons, and as harvesters sharpen our sickles, and as sailors order our thoughts against the waves of extravagant desires, and as travellers set out on the journey towards heaven, and as wrestlers strip for the contest. For the believer is at once a harvester, a sailor, a soldier, a wrestler and a traveller.’ St John Chrysostom, quoted in Bible Alive.
