Ash Wednesday: Remember, man, that you are dust....

Lent begins today with the traditional ceremonies of ashing during mass.
Perhaps this Lent as part of our process of discernment we may be able to reflect on the "Babylonian captivity" of our part of the Church in relation both to the secular culture and the secularists within. By God's grace, we should repent of our own complicity in that process and, in love, do what we can, where we can, to make amends. Lent is a strongly corporate experience as well as an intensely personal one.
