Today is Ash Wednesday. In the 40 days until Easter, we are called to rend our hearts, not our garments, as we repent of our sins. At Mass today the priest didn’t mince any words. He began by reminding us that we all are going to die one day. There is no escaping this. One day we will face judgment for what we have done, and what we have failed to do. Therefore we must mend our ways, lest we find ourselves among the goats, and not the Lord’s flock, on the day of judgment.
The last time this season came around I ran a series of more personal posts. I don’t think that I will follow that pattern this year. I’m not sure at this point if I’ll do anything special, or if I will take a break, or simply continue business as usual.
