Ash Wednesday

March 2, 2022

Today marks the beginning of Lent and is a solemn day of fasting and penitence. Pope Benedict XVI said, “Lent is a journey. It means accompanying Jesus as he travels to Jerusalem, the place where the mystery of his passion, death, and resurrection is to be fulfilled. It reminds us that Christian life is a ‘road’ to be traveled, consisting not so much in a law to be observed as in the person of Christ himself, who must be encountered, welcomed, and followed.”

“Our humanity comes to its fullest bloom in giving. We become beautiful people when we give whatever we can give: a smile, a handshake, a kiss, an embrace, a word of love, a present, a part of our life...all of our life.”
–Henri Nouwen
