The Desert

Ash Wednesday, Mt. 6:1-6, 16-18

A desert is a place that doesn’t give you anything; when you live their you have to exist on your inner resources. Tonight I will be placing ashes upon people who wish them and saying the words: “Remember you are dust, and to dust you will return.” They truly live in the desert of physical need–I see Henry, John, Sean, and many more with their blankets in the doorways, I see them with only the clothes on their back, and the socks I give them. They have nothing. And so this Lent I remember I live in the desert day in and day out, and I remember I am dust and to dust I will be return. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
