Rejoice! We are Half-Way There!

Today is Laetare Sunday. The full Introit for Holy Mass reads:
Laetare Jerusalem: et conventum facite omnes qui diligitis eam: gaudete cum laetitia, qui in tristitia fuistis: ut exsultetis,et satiemini ab uberibus consolationis vestrae.Psalm: Laetatus sum in his quae dicta sunt mihi: in domum Domini ibimus.
(Rejoice, O Jerusalem: and come together all you that love her: rejoice with joy, you that have been in sorrow: that you may exult, and be filled from the breasts of your consolation. Psalm: I rejoiced when they said to me: "we shall go into God's House!")
