Musing Ashes

Not everyone will readily reflect on the fact that we are ashes. But the beauty of it is that God took the dust of the ground and breathed life into us. The very source of why we exist is in God. Apart from God, we are nothing.

In a few short days, countless numbers will gather to receive ashes and begin this season of Lent. It’s a season of spiritual renewal and not a personal diet. So as we ponder on the sacrifices that we take on, let’s consider those things that will help us enter into the desert of our lives with the LORD and allow him to transform us into his likeness.

Above all, remember the catechumens and candidates preparing for sacraments at the Great Vigil of Easter. It’s Lent… don’t forget God.
