Ash Wednesday

It was on an Ash Wednesday that I came home to the Catholic Church. It's a beautiful time to come into the Church. It's like a New Years- a time to make resolutions, a time to reflect on our lives. We give up things: TV, video games, or sweets. We begin something new like going to daily Mass or praying the Rosary. Some of us give up something we wish to be rid of forever, like cigarettes or swearing.

But what do these earthly things have to do with our relationship with God? As you know, we are physical as well as spiritual creatures and well, Peace Garden Mama said it better than I. See her blog post to read what she says so eloquently. It's one I know I'll go back and read throughout Lent.
