Ash Wednesday

Remember friends as you pass by, 
as you are now so once was I. 
As I am now so you must be. 
Prepare for death and follow me.

"In all thy works remember thy last end, and thou shalt never sin." Ecclesiasticus 7:40

The areas to work on for these days of Lent include:

  • Voluntary Amendment of Life - curb a poor habit to form a good habit to lead one to a life of virtue and ultimately, a life of heroic virtue
  • Acts of Penance - acts of self-denial
  • Works of Charity - acts of kindness
  • Spiritual Reading & Meditation - good spiritual reading and taking some quiet time each day to unite oneself more firmly with God

Meménto, homo, quia pulvis es, et in púlverem revertéris
Remember, man, that thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return.
