I can’t help but to think the lockdown imposed by the pandemic is in some ways a lot like Lent. Both have had times of solitude, reflection, and self-deprivation. And, if we’re honest with ourselves, the further along we are in this season of Lent, we’re that much more ready for it to be over so that we can celebrate Easter and the beginning of Spring. Much like the lockdown, as we’ve got a glimpse of things returning back to “normal”, we are SO READY for the masks, excessive hand-washing, and social-distancing to be over. We look forward to our own resurrection from the tomb of our own homes.
