Brethren and fathers, the season of Lent,
when compared to the whole year,
may be likened to a storm-free harbor,
in which all who are sailing together
enjoy a spiritual calm.
~St. Theodore the Studite
Christ’s calming on the storm at sea
was more than a gesture of protection and comfort for the apostles;
it was a miniature of temperance
executed by a divine hand.
Prepare your soul
for rest from stormy passions
in the discipline of Lent.
