Today You Must Rejoice in the Lord!
LAETARE SUNDAY is perhaps the most “Franciscan” day of the year. After all, Francis’ call was to a life of penitence, yet in the midst of that life he always stressed the importance of Joy (Laetitia). And this is a Sunday, on which we remember the resurrection even as we look at the Crucified One. So let us rejoice, do penance, and believe in the power of God! Amen.
