Seasons of the Soul: Ash Wednesday

Welcome dear feast of Lent: who loves not thee,
He loves not Temperance, or Authority,
But is composed of passion.
The Scriptures bid us fast; the Church says, now:
Give to your Mother, what you would allow
To every Corporation.

George Herbert

Ash Wednesday is here. On Ash Wednesday, we are reminded of our own mortality. It is a time of repentance, mortification, and reflection. The forty day Lenten period brings to mind the period that Jesus spent in the desert prior to commencing his public ministry.

Readings for Ash Wednesday

Remember, man, that you are dust
And unto dust you shall return
