Ash Wednesday

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent. It is very early this year - the earliest it can possibly be, with Easter falling on March 23rd. Lent is meant to be a time of self-reflection and sacrifice, a time for prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. It is a time to strip away all the stuff that keeps us from God so that at Easter, we can truly rejoice in the Resurrection and in the eternal life it promises.
