Tuesday of Quinquagesima Week

Sweet is this present life, but it passes away; terrible O Christ, is thy judgement, and it endures for ever. Let us, therefore, cease to love what is unstable, and fix our thoughts on the fear of what is eternal; saying; Christ have mercy upon us!
- from the Ambrosian liturgy

Let us gratefully use this world; go through it without making it the object of our hope; not waste upon it that love, which God alone deserves; and be ever mindful, that we are not made for this, but for another and happier world.
- from 'The Liturgical Year', Gueranger, Book #4, p. 200.

May you have a fruitful Lent.
