Ash Wednesday

Today, Ash Wednesday, we receive the ashes that remind us of the power of sin and death, which return us to the dust from which we came. Yet we wear the ashes in the form of a cross, professing that Christ has conquered death and restored life. We repent of all sin, and prepare to renew the vows of our baptism at Easter, when many will be baptized for the first time.

In other words, Lent prepares us to share the victory of Life and to live as the People of Life. Lent is the time when we learn more deeply why we are pro-life. Turning away from sin means we put God above our “freedom of choice.” Believing in the Gospel means we believe in life, and reject the forces of death, including abortion.
