Looking Ahead a Little Too Far...

**

from a sermon of St. John Chrysostom, apparently delivered midway through Lent:

"...and...we shall, when the fast returns, welcome it with pleasure. For I see many who are so feeble-minded that at the present season they are anxious about the following Lent. I have heard many saying, after their liberation from the fast, they are insensible to any pleasure from this remission, on account of their anxiety about the coming year."
