Default The Power of Death-- Ash Wednesday Reflections

ash wednesday is a reminder of our mortality. the prayer during the imposition of ashes on one's forehead is:

remember you are dust and to dust you shall return


it speaks of the need of a change of heart and mind today because of our inherent weakness as human beings


does our u.s. society/culture "fear" death?

how does ash wednesday and/or our mortality speak to you?
