Entering the CIty

During Rosh Hashana, the call of God for repentence is symbolized by the call of the shofar, which itself means in ordinary usage of the ancient semetic city "Come, the gates of the city are closing!" Repent now, you may not have the chance later. The same can be said of Lent-- one only has so many years, and this may be the last chance to get right with God. Indeed, none of us knows we will be here tomorrow.
