It's Ash Wednesday - Get thee to Church today!

" Dust thou art, and into dust thou shalt return."
Gn. 3:19

The choir will be singing at the 7:00pm Mass at Grotto tonight.  As it will be tonight, and throughout Lent, very reserved, often without organ.  The silence is a reminder that this is a penitential season. 

I hope you will find time for God today, and if your work or school schedule permits, get to a parish for Mass, if there is one scheduled, or at least ashes.  

Also, keep in mind that today is a day of fasting

At the start of the Lenten Season, EWTN offers this reflection on Ash Wednesday

Te Deum Laudamus! Home

The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church; it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!
