Remember, man, that you are dust

Today is Ash Wednesday. A day for remembering where we have come from and where we are going. A day to resolve to repent and follow God's teachings more closely.

Ash Wednesday begins Lent--a time for resolving, with God's help, to walk the path that He gives us, knowing that we do not walk it alone.

Receiving ashes in any Catholic church today, is open to all, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, for we all will die.

Remember, man, that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return.

Repent and believe in the Good News.

Thanks, Marilena.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
