Ash Wednesday: Remember We Are Dust.
by Chris Kamalski
This portion of the Ash Wednesday liturgy has always struck me deeply:
Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the
earth: Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our
mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is
only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
How are you observing this season of preparation as an individual or community?
