Ash Wednesday

"Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris."

Remember, man, that thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return. (Gen. 3. 19)

“Grant to Thy faithful, O Lord, that they may begin the venerable solemnity of Lent with becoming piety, and perform it with undistributed devotion.”

Fasting, alms, penance and the corporal and spiritual works of mercy are the best means to employ during the forty days of Lent to gather heavenly treasures.  For this purpose, O Christian, God Himself summons you today, while through His church He earnestly cries out to you:  “Remember man that thou art dust, and into dust thou wilt return. ~The Gospels for Lent and the Passion of Christ
