Ash Wednesday 6th March 2019

 

We enter this holy season with a question foremost in our minds: What does it mean to be a Catholic?

 

To be a Catholic is to grow close to Christ through prayer, spiritual reading,

and celebrating the Eucharist.

 

It also means to let our faith show in all we do and say.

Lent is a time to pray, fast and give alms

as a sign of our love for God.

 

God the Father knows our every need – we turn to the Father confident of his love and care.

 

We turn to the Son expectant to enter more deeply into the mystery of salvation.

 

We call upon the Holy Spirit to lighten our journey with wisdom, understanding and knowledge.

 

We embrace the path of self-denial as a sign of our desire to grow close to God

“Be careful not to parade your good deeds”

 

Lord Jesus, teach me that to be a Catholic is

to grow close to you and

witness to my faith in all I do and say.
