"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Ash Wednesday

I do not usually get ashes. Women in chapel veils always scolded me for brushing them off afterwards, so I stopped getting them.

Oops - there go the blogrolls.

  3. I forget they're there and start itching . . . I rub them almost completely off before I get out of the chapel. It itches!

    I'm with you! What is this about ashes! If people were only so excited to go to MASS and receive Jesus in the Eucharist everyday!
