*Ash Wednesday..........February 25

Encore, Repeat, Again, Once More

"Let us receive them (ashes) in a spirit of humility and penance, that by this powerful sacramental we may obtain from almighty God the blessings which the Church implores in the act of blessing them. For, truly, "God overlooks the sins of men for the sake of repentance."

A nice image and text! As we all begin the journey of Lent, may we always keep in mind that we should at all times "be ready" for we know not the time or hour that we will be called to stand before Jesus the Just Judge. Through prayer, penance and fasting may we grow in holiness so that we maybe truly transformed into the image of our Saviour! A blessed and holy Lent to you Micki! John K.

John K. - Love your words "transformed into the image of our Saviour." What a goal that is. Thanks.
