live-lent-2Lent is three days old, and I’m already feeling weak about my Lenten resolutions. That’s no surprise, but it is surprising that the Gospel for today suggests that all that fasting and discipline aren’t always the best things. Jesus’ disciples aren’t fasting, and Jesus defends them. No one fasts or mourns at a wedding, so why should disciples do penance when they’re in the midst of their Master? With God in our midst it is always a time for rejoicing.
