Dust thou art, to dust returneth
Yesterday, Wednesday, March 6, the church gathered together to embark upon an important journey: Lent.
No, I'm not talking about lint, the stuff you find at the bottom of your pockets, but Lent, the season of the church year which anticipates the celebration of Jesus' resurrection on Easter Sunday.
The Lenten season began yesterday on Ash Wednesday by recalling the words of our Lord spoken to Adam and Eve after their fall into sin: "By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, til you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return."
