Ash Wednesday (Option 1)

How healing will be your Lent?

Ash WednesdayHandout for Ash Wednesday.

Description: Evangelize on Ash Wednesday, even the rarely-active Catholics who come just for the ashes. Using scriptures from the liturgy of Ash Wednesday, this reflection 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.
