Ash Wednesday 2008

Today is Ash Wednesday. It marks the first day of the Lenten season and occurs forty (40) days (hence the local term, “Cuaresma” for Lent) before Easter.

I’m glad Conne and I could go home in time to attend the 7:30 PM mass and have ash imposed on our foreheads. And I noticed the queue heading up to the imposition of ashes wasn’t long. This is probably because most parishioners already attended the early morning and afternoon services.

So what’s next? The forty-day period gives us ample time to reflect on our lives, make amends, and prepare for the coming Holy Week. So let’s do it!

God is good! Cheers!
