SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT — Year A
*Alternate* Second Reading: Excerpt from Mount Analogue, an allegory of the spiritual quest by René Daumal.
You cannot stay on the summit forever. You have to come down again …
One climbs and one sees; one descends and one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself … by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one no longer sees, one can at least know.
The words of René Daumal.
