Ash Wednesday thoughts

As the cold nights of winter slowly give way to the lengthening days of spring, so to the wheel of the liturgical calender turns towards Lent, a time of preparation, prayer and meditation.  For many, Lent is bound up with sacrifice, of giving something up for a month and a half.  For myself, I consider it a time for spiritual spring cleaning.

Now is the time to open the doors of your heart and swing wide the windows of your mind to let the beams of Divine sunlight brighten those dark corners.  Bask in the glow of the Heavenly as it reflects within you and know that you are beloved of God as Her son, His daughter.

Take this time, these weeks ahead, to examine what is in your life that is profitable, good and holy.  Treasure and strengthen those things while looking at ways to rid yourself of the parts of your life which are neither holy, good nor profitable.

May the Son shine warm upon your face.
