Ash Wednesday

How healing will your Lent be?

Ash WednesdayHandout for Ash Wednesday

Description: Evangelize on Ash Wednesday, even rarely-active Catholics! Using scriptures from the liturgy of Ash Wednesday, this leaflet asks the reader: How healing will your Lent be? What needs to be resurrected in your life? To experience the joy and power of resurrection, we have to take a journey through the experience of mourning and repentance. We have to experience the powerlessness of death: the death of our selfishness, the death of our worldliness, the death of behaviors that are not Christ-like.


Ideas for use: Bulletin insert or handout for Ash Wednesday or the Sunday prior or anytime during Lent; hand this out to the many rarely-active Catholics who come to church for ashes. Also great for beginning the Period of Purification in RCIA class.

Idea from a satisfied customer: “Last year, we collected walking canes from beach driftwood and painted them in thirds to represent the fasting, prayers, and almsgiving sections you mentioned. It was very meaningful as well as visually impactful. Thank you for such insightful material.”
