As we recall the ashes placed on our foreheads this day, let us see this woman and feel God stir deep inside of us. Live the Ash Wednesday message understanding God’s communion with this “woman.” Wear your ashes and experience the human struggle to survive; hear the Call for help.
The ashes we receive—and this Lenten Season we observe—are about connection, about compassion, about kindness, and about mercy. Examine how to live the Gospel message in your own life these days and reconnect yourself with Christ's Call for you!
