No Hiding on Ash Wednesday

 

Often sharing our faith can be a very scary thing. There are many skeptics and non-believers. Ash Wednesday is one of those days that we cannot hide from people when it comes to beliefs. It is literally written on our face through the form of ashes. Symbolizing repentance that we are asking from God for all those times we have sinned. The beauty of this day is God undying forgiveness and it’s awesome to see all those brothers and sisters that are united in faith and communion with us. It also gives us the opportunity to talk and converse with those of other faiths or those who have lost there way from faith. The Ash are a great way to strike up a conversation about God’s beauty and awe. X3Sab-i41oaiqaa-hl-1

Quote of the Day

“As Lent is the time for greater love, listen to Jesus’ thirst…’Repent and believe’ Jesus tells us. What are we to repent? Our indifference, our hardness of heart. What are we to believe? Jesus thirsts even now, in your heart and in the poor — He knows your weakness. He wants only your love, wants only the chance to love you.” — Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
