Ash Wednesday

6 March 2019 | General Interest



... the echo of the Lent-stained ashes

speaks the truth of my humanity:

the humbleness of my beginning,

the simplicity of my departure.


A few wise words

echoing through Ash Wednesday

urge me to deeper things:

renewed dedication, 

constant compassion and mindful awareness.
