Lent--Why Bother?

Frederica Mathewes-Green has published a nice essay on the value of Great Lent.

Ms. Mathewes-Green has written much on Eastern Christian spirituality and the Orthodox Church. Her husband, Fr. Gregory Mathewes-Green, is an Orthodox priest. Among her works are:

The Illumined Heart: Capture the Vibrant Faith of Ancient Christians

The Jesus Prayer: The Ancient Desert Prayer That Tunes the Heart to God

At the Corner of East and Now: A Modern Life in Ancient Christian Orthodoxy; and

The Open Door: Entering the Sactuary of Icons and Prayer

Thank you to Andrew Mitry for sending the article.
