Open to Me : Lenten Triodion

Open to me, O Giver of Life, the gates of repentance : for early in the morning my spirit seeks Your holy temple.  The season of the preparing for Lent begins with the above hymn.  We are thus reminded that the purpose of Lent is to return to God, not simply to change our diet.
