Ash Wednesday

Thus we begin the Forty Days before the Paschaltime. Many Roman Catholics will be going to their churches to get ashes on their foreheads, as will I.

Lent is a time for contemplating who we are in relation to other people, and to our God. We think about our faults and our sinful nature....but we can also thank our Lord Jesus for His mercy and sacrifice on the cross. This is a time to pray and fast, but also to look for acts of mercy and good works informed by our faith.

Take the time in the morning and spend it with Jesus in prayer. Pray the rosary. Fast. We are in big, big trouble and we need our Lord more than ever.

God be with you!
