Then the virgins shall make merry and dance,
and young men and old as well.
I will turn their mourning into joy,
I will console and gladden them after their sorrows. - Jeremiah 31:13
Lent is nearly over. We are in the home stretch. Today's Responsorial Psalm reminds us that even in the midst of the sadness, brighter days will come. There will be a time for rejoicing and celebration. It is coming. One more week to go.
