Ember Days

Here is one of the best explanations of the Ember Days (just passed), their rise and fall, which I have ever read.
The Ember days, then, stand out as the only days in the supernatural seasons of the Church that commemorate the natural seasons of the earth. This is appropriate, for since the liturgical year annually renews our initiation into the mystery of redemption, it should have some special mention of the very thing which grace perfects.
