Re-Turning to the Lord: A Call for Ad Orientem Worship CRISIS MAGAZINE - March 16, 2017 Lent is a season of conversion.

If Easter is resurrection and Ash Wednesday is the day we face our mortality (a clean way of saying "Some day we are all going to die"), then Lent is the time of burial, the time between dying and rising.
