Today is Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Season of Lent.
Mt 6:1-6, 16-18
We begin a new liturgical time-the season of Lent. The readings tell us to live faithfully and propose three attitudes or practices that will help us in our spiritual journey: fasting, prayer, and compassion to one another. All of these must come from the depth of our hearts because God sees what is secret and he will reward us accordingly.
