Ash Wednesday

A photograph taken after mass last year
on Ash Wednesday

Remember you are dust and it is to dust you shall be returned.

This Lent work metanoia on me
by turning: pride into humility,
anxiety into acceptance, 
frugality into generosity,
criticism into praise,
...coldness into warmth, 
neglect into concern,
indifference into love,
grudges into joy,
ingratitude into thankfulness,
prayerlessness into devotion
at the foot of the cross.
Lord take the clay,
Begin the shaping in preparation
for the wedding feast of the Lamb.

There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends.
That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first.
when you learn to live for others, they will live for you. ♥

My religion is kindness
