Ash Wednseday

Elena-Maria Vidal at Tea at Trianon, has posted this day an article on Ash Wednesday.

Ash Wednesday

Remember, man, that you are dust and unto dust you shall return.
Our forty days of penance commence with the reception of blessed ashes. The words from the book of Genesis (3:19) help us to think of the shortness of life, of our last end, and of that moment when each shall come before God to be judged. "Remember," wrote Saint Teresa of Avila, "that you have only one life, which is short and has to be lived by you alone; that there is only one glory, which is eternal."
