      Our physical presence at Mass is pivotal because Jesus acted in the flesh and continues to come to us in the flesh. Now, more than ever, it is both “necessary and urgent to return to the normality of Christian life…and especially the Eucharist,” as noted by Cardinal Sarah last September. This is not only wise advice from the former Prefect for the Congregation of Divine Worship, but a practical plea to all Catholics to return to the place of the utmost grace.

      "I urge you to trust in God, His Son Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, and to seek to know Him more deeply in your daily journey. Repent of your sins and seek Gospel virtues. Study scripture in order to have a better understanding of the Word of God, and through study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, deepen your knowledge of the Deposit of Faith which is the heritage of the Church. Receive the sacraments often, especially the Eucharist, with joy and reverence for it is Jesus who comes to you through His sacraments."

      Separation, communion, and witness. These elements of holiness set the trajectory for Lent. By our mortifications and acts of self-denial we separate ourselves and declare our independence from the world. We do so with a view to encounter and be one with Christ, especially in His passion and death. When we conclude at Easter, we hope to give witness along with the Apostles saying, “We cannot help but speak of what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:20)

      I do not underestimate the real divisions in America and in what we once called the Western world. Both our editor and David Warren can testify to my Augustinian pessimism regarding the short-term prospects for the City of Man around us. If anything, I believe the divisions are more profound than most people realize, hinging as they do on incompatible and irreconcilable notions of what justice is and what the human person is. That kind of division makes political community impossible, and the best that can be hoped for is a less violent confrontation between the opposing understandings of reality.

      For the Christian, this female power can never be diminished. There’s a reason that mystics throughout the centuries have said we are all symbolically female in relation to God. He initiates with grace, and we choose. He lays down His life, and we follow Him. That’s why the highest example of a Christian will always be Mary. She was presented with a choice, and, on behalf of humanity, said “yes,” just like her symbolic predecessor Eve chose “no” by listening to the Serpent.
