Wednesday March 2nd, 2022 marks the beginning of the Lenten season and is called Ash Wednesday. Many partake in the ritual of sprinkling Ashes upon the forehand or head, from the previous years palms. This is the period that usually lasts for about six (6) weeks, and leads up to the most Holy Days of Easter. This day and time can be a very sensitive time for people of faith, that can evoke emotions, especially due to the significance of the time, the most holy sacrifice of Jesus Christ. I decided to take a moment to reflect and upon a Catholic devotional, which can be a practice that is observed as part of Ash Wednesday. The Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Whilst I am respectful of Pope Francis’ call for a day of fasting, I wish all those who take part in the act of fasting all the very best, and thank you for your devotion and representation of Christ, through our Holy Father Pope Francis. I also would like to take a moment to reflect upon the homeless, the ones where survival is of upmost priority, this time is crucial for the fulfilling of the need of food. To appreciate food, our ability for the consumption of food, and to be able to fulfill our human need to eat food.
I wish everyone who participates and celebrates Ash Wednesday, a peaceful beginning to the Lenten season 2021 that leads to Easter.
With Love & Kindness! 🙂
