Ash Wednesday: A Season of Dying Begins

dustToday is Ash Wednesday.

Today we remember that we came from dust and to dust we return.

Today we remember that our lives are but a vapor and God is forever.

Today we begin our return; to relationship, to wholeness, to life, to God.

A prayer for Ash Wednesday:

Come back to the Lord with all your heart;

leave the past in ashes,

and turn to God with tears and fasting,

for he is slow to anger and ready to forgive. (Joel 2:13)

Let the priests and ministers of the Lord

lament before his altar, and say:

Spare us, Lord, spare your people!

Do not let us die for we are crying out to you. (Joel 2:17; Est 13:17)–The Sacrementary
