Ashes On My Forehead remind me of who I am, where I came from, and where I am going. God my creator made me from the ashes of the earth. I depend on Him for everything. I am headed back to him on his terms. My body will last for 70 or 80 years. This is a sign that if is a temporary possession. My body is on loan from God for a time. My body will go back to ashes. Without my body, I cannot hold on to any of my possessions. When 1 die, all my possessions will be given away. Ashes on my forehead remind me that riches stored up in heaven do more good than riches stored up here. Ashes on my forehead remind me it is time for almsgiving.
Ashes On My Forehead remind me that I am a sinner. I do not have to go down in defeat because I am a sinner. As a sinner, I am a potential saint. Ashes on my forehead are a sign that Lent has begun and the Lord is inviting me to change my life. As a potential saint, 1 am ready for conversion; ashes on my forehead remind me that I need confession.
Ashes On My Forehead remind me of death, but that does not make me sad or glum. Jesus tells me in the gospel that when I pray, fast, and give alms 1 can still be joyful because Jesus overcame death by His resurrection. The cross on my forehead on Ash Wednesday is a reminder that Lam on my way to the resurrection of Jesus through the cross of Jesus.
SPRING BIBLE STUDY: Begins the week of February 15th. The topic is Acts: The Good News of the Holy Spirit. The Acts of the Apostles is the stoiy of the birth of the Church. In Acts Jesus departs, the Spirit descends, and a dynamic new faith is born. We discover that the greatest acts of the apostles are actually a result of the work of the Holy Spirit—the conversions of hearts and lives everywhere. Please call Paul Loman or Cindy Hoosock in the School of Religion Office (454-3639) to join a group (meeting times on page 2) or find out how to start one of your own.
