The ashes we'll receive on Wednesday won't last very long at all. At best, they'll serve as a good Lenten reminder for about a day. In my parish every year, in addition to ashes, we distribute a reminder that we're living not just a day but a season of renewal and repentance. For several years now, we've distributed small pocket Crosses bearing a scripture verse.
This year's verse is Romans 12:12
Rejoice in hope,
be patient in tribulation,
be constant in prayer.
If you'd like to have one of these crosses, just send a self-addressed stamped envelope to
55 Church Street
Concord, MA 01742
There is no charge for your Cross. Please do not send any money with your request! If you want to make a donation, please send your offering to the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation, the link for which is always on my sidebar.
