LENTCAzT 2019 – 02 Thursday after Ash Wednesday: blessing of ashes

These daily 5 minute podcasts are intended to give you a small boost every day, a little encouragement in your own use of this holy season.

I provide these especially in gratitude to benefactors who help me and this blog.

Today is Thursday after Ash Wednesday. Our Lenten discipline begins.   GO TO CONFESSION!

    Thanks Father.
    We had a Missa Cantata last night for Ash Wednesday where of course these prayers were used. What sticks in my mind is Parce – spare us – that appears in the prayers.

    Father gave a great homily where he reminded us of the 2 things we don’t like to talk about (1) we are all sinners and we can’t change that by ourselves no matter how many shrinks we go to or self help books we read and (2) we are all going to die. Our only hope is Jesus Christ.

    Many thanks for your faithful production of these, Father. I have been hit or miss in the past, but this year I’ve made listening daily a part of my Lenten practice.
